Adjusting screen resolution lead to a black screen
@moserwi Please don't say to me "the most stupid excuse". I am NOT responsible for the Pinebook Pro Linux distros, included software, the hardware or any of the related computer standards. I simply tried to give information that would improve readability. (Which WORKS for me, using XFCE4, a light weight display manager.)

The days of analog video monitors with variable resolutions has been over for more than a decade. LCDs, LEDs and Plasma displays are designed with a "native", (aka HARD DESIGNED IN pixel), resolution. How they handle non-native resolutions is device and company specific. So, wanting to use "xrandr" in an outdated way is beyond the scope of what I wrote.

This is what has been written to assist with the subject. If you find something to add, improve or correct, simply do so:
