2016-02-18 21:18:57 -0500 asked a question Unknown Display - Wrong max resolution for secondary monitor

Hi guys! I have now a RCA RC32D2 TV and it is 32". The thing is that it should have an aspect ratio of 16:9.

Here's the output of xrandr:

Screen 0: minimum 8 x 8, current 2390 x 768, maximum 32767 x 32767
LVDS1 connected primary 1366x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 344mm x 194mm

   720x405       60.00  
   680x384       60.00  
   640x360       60.00  
DP1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)

   1024x768      60.00* 
   800x600       60.32    56.25

   640x480       59.94  
VIRTUAL1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)

As you can see, I'm connection my TV with a VGA cable and has the name VGA1 so I did the following according to xrandr guide to add the resolution 1366x768

cvt 1366 768 60
xrandr --newmode "1368x768_60.00"   85.25  1368 1440 1576 1784  768 771 781 798 -hsync +vsync
xrandr --addmode VGA1 1368x768_60.00

And well, it doesn't seem to work or the resolution is still too low because I still don't see the complete screen on my second monitor, for example I'm using Firefox right now but I don't see the complete browser, the right part seems incomplete. I tried adding the following 16:9 resolution which is 1600x900 but without luck, here's what I did:

cvt 1600 900 60
xrandr --newmode "1600x900_60.00"  118.25  1600 1696 1856 2112  900 903 908 934 -hsync +vsync
xrandr --addmode VGA1 1600x900_60.00

Then I went to Display > Unknown Display > 1600x900 and clicked on keep changes but didn't work! xrandr tell me I'm using 1368x768 resolution! Any help would be so much appreciated guys!

Also, this is the output for lspci, I did this to know my video card:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller (rev 09)

Edit: The TV tell me the resolution is 1280x768. :(

2015-08-01 10:30:13 -0500 commented question Fedora 22, never shut down

Something to keep in mind is that I changed Fedora 21 to Fedora 22 because I update everything, Yum update. And after that Google-Chrome started showing problems, for example: when I click right button on the mouse it didn't show the menu, it was a black window and the computer gets stuck. Had to reboot the computer the hard way. Maybe it's a problem with a new kernel? could that be? rpm -q kernel gives me kernel-4.0.4-301.fc22.x86_64. :)

2015-08-01 10:22:26 -0500 commented answer Fedora 22, never shut down

I read somewhere else that maybe logging off, then open the terminal and run this command as root will make the computer to completely shut it off. But is this the only option I got? Feels sad. I really like Fedora. :(

Oh yeah. in this case I was trying to reboot the computer. And I have not enough knowledge to really tell If there's hardware error. However I don't think this is the case. In dmesg a few lines appears in red though, for example this one: [ 31.729361] nouveau E[ PDISP][0000:01:00.0] INVALID_STATE [UNK05] chid 0 mthd 0x0080 data 0x00000000 Does that help?

2015-07-31 18:54:10 -0500 asked a question Fedora 22, never shut down

I installed Fedora 22 a few days ago and since the first day I notice that the computer (at times) never shut down and I have to long press the power button to shut it down myself. I never had this problem with Fedora 21.

I ran (as a root) journeyctl and this is the output:
