Hi all

Do you know your monitors native resolution (or the resolution you’re using now) ?

Please post the output from:



lshw -C display

Yeah there’s a “NOTIFY” button at the top of every topic page … or you can change your notifications settings in the left hand column in your forum profile … or by following this link:

What’s the output from:

update-alternatives --query default.plymouth

See if running:

sudo update-initramfs -u

then rebooting makes any difference ?
