How can I change the screen resolution?
#1
Hi,

I am trying to change the screen resolution at "System->Preferences->Monitor" but the Resolution tap only have a single option of 1280x720. May I know how can I change it?

Thanks
James

Hello,

I too have the same problem. I looked into the link above but that discussion seems too complex or technical for my understanding. As a newbie user of Pine64, I expected the resolution to be set in the mate configuration tool. Could you explain how can this be done if it's possible at all?

My current debian installation is (from uname -a):
Linux pine64pro 3.10.101-0-pine64-longsleep #39 SMP PREEMPT Sat May 7 12:39:25 CEST 2016 aarch64 GNU/Linux

The fast way to switch to 720p or 1080p (requires sunxi-disp-tool installed):
sunxi-disp-tool switch -name 720p
sunxi-disp-tool switch -name 1080p


Type (or paste) this into a command shell to change the default resolution to 720p:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install sunxi-disp-tool
cat <<EOF | sudo tee -a /boot/uEnv.txt
optargs=disp.screen0_output_mode=720p60
EOF
sudo reboot

Available display-modes (input after instead of 720p60 in line 3 in the script above) for /boot/uEnv.txt:
Code:
720p50
720p60
720p
1080i50
1080i60
1080p24
1080p50
1080p60
1080p
2160p24
2160p25
2160p30
2160p

Does this clarify?

Thanks to Luke and other folks in the IRC channel chat room, I could change the resolution by
1. Modifying the /boot/uEnv.txt file:
In a terminal shell,
   sudo nano /boot/uEnv.txt
   optargs=disp.screen0_output_mode=720p60  <== changed this to 1080
2. Reboot
   sudo reboot

I am getting this error:

pine64user@debianpine64:~$ sudo apt-get install sunxi-disp-tool
[sudo] password for pine64user:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package sunxi-disp-tool
pine64user@debianpine64:~$

My display is set to 1080p at 0 hz and I like to change to 1080p 60hz or 720p. I don get any option about "optargs=disp.screen0_output_mode=720p60  <== changed this to 1080" under sudo nano /boot/uEnv.txt.

ALso,when I open uEnvi.txt file I am getting following:

console=tty0 console=ttyS0,115200n8 no_console_suspend
kernel_filename=pine64/Image
initrd_filename=initrd.img
ethaddr=7a:6e:63:ac:21:f1




How do I resolve this error?

Thanks
