Thread: Overscan on hdmi

  1. Overscan on hdmi

    I have downloaded, installed, registered and applied all updates. The installation is working fine.

    BUT

    I need to apply some overscan settings (left & right 24, and top & bottom 16) I've added the appropriate lines to BOTH config.txt files (in efi and vc) but they are being ignored. Without this the system is unuseable which would be a pity as I can't see the task bar and I can't maximize any windows or I lose the window controls.

    Help please, how can I apply these settings?

  2. Re: Overscan on hdmi

    I didn't get any HDMI settings to work when I tried in Tumbleweed for Raspi (2 or 3, don't remember). It's a pain. Only workaround I found:

    - Add a non-root user
    - Install tigervnc (cookbook here, adapt directories in the systemd script to your new, non-root user)

    https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/v...?f=66&t=123457

    - Use your raspi headless and have a free-scalable desktop that works (in TW, at least ;-) ).

    Have fun!
    Kind regards

    Cheers for the response Raspu, but maybe I'll try again in 6 months or so when it's a little more "pi friendly".

    I'm having the same issues. Any plans to implement the config.txt?
