Just a question: how can I force bVNC to show my desktop screen in full screen mode on my Onyx Note? bVNC shows my desktop screen smaller

Tapping anywhere on the screen will show the menu icon on the right side of the screen. Touch the rightmost icon ":" to get the option for the zoomable view.

I've created 2 batch files to connect easily my Onyx Note by usb cable and adb.

The first file is:

Code:
@echo off
cd /d C:\adb\platform-tools\
ChangeScreenResolution.exe /w=800 /h=600 /f=60 /b=32 /d=0
adb reverse tcp:5900 tcp:5900
The second one is:

Code:
@echo off
cd /d C:\adb\platform-tools\
ChangeScreenResolution.exe /w=1600 /h=900 /f=60 /b=32 /d=0
The second file just restores the default resolution of my laptop (1600x900). I've download this small app to change easily the resolution of the screen and I moved it in the adb folder. When I want to use my Onyx Note as external screen I connect the usb cable and I click the first file. In this way on Onyx Note I have just to open bVNC and click "Connect". I just wanted to share what I've learned :-)

Hello, I am having trouble setting screen resolution using MAX2 with HDMI port on Linux mint laptop.

When I plug it in and run the monitor app it works but the only screen resolution available is 2104 X 1506. Such tiny icons and text is causing eye strain defeating the purpose of e-ink.
I wish to use 1024 X 768 (or 1152X864) so that the text is big enough to read.

Using windows 7 on the same computer I can switch to 1024X768 in the control panel and it works so I assume it must be possible to make it work also in linux?

I have tried the following:

sudo cvt 1024 768

1600x900 59.95 Hz (CVT 1.44M9) hsync: 55.99 kHz; pclk: 118.25 MHz

Modeline "1024x768_75.00" 82.00 1024 1088 1192 1360 768 771 775 805 -hsync +vsync

xrandr --newmode "1024x768_75.00" 82.00 1024 1088 1192 1360 768 771 775 805 -hsync +vsync

xrandr --addmode HDMI-1 "1024x768_75.00"

after which the 1024 X 768 option appear in the display preferences drop down. however when I choose this setting the BOOX monitior freezes the display. If I exit the monitor app and try again I just get a black screen.

I also tried typing in

xrandr --output HDMI-1 --mode 1024x768_75.00

but still no luck. I do not have much knowledge of linux so please could someone guide me how to change to a lower resolution.

Thanks

Should not you instead increase the DPI setting?

Could it be possible to connect a Wifi antenna via usb on the Onyx? I want to be able to reproduce video on the Onyx N96ML while I am connected through VNC via WIFI, but to do that I need the antenna to be able to achieve the 5Ghz, because with 2'4Ghz there are lagging problems.

What do you think?
