Hello,

did you look in the settings? There may be a Display panel. I don't have my Netwalker anymore (long story...) so can't check. If such a panel is missing, you may have to edit/create xorg.conf accordingly.

I also tried xrandr for some on-the-fly modifications (namely to create a virtual screen with panning) but it wouldn't work. If it did it would be a nice option to quickly change the resolution.

Hope this helps!

In the panel only appear the standart resolution, so i'm not able to changed. With xrandar I don't know which device to put. Also it don't exist xorg.conf, so i'm afraid to put some (i'm newbie).

Im afraid it will be hard to achieve full screen vga resolution.
If you start fiddling with X configuration you will be able to make it work in vga resolution but not stretched for sure. I do not know if it will be possible to set display to stretch mode of any kind.

What kind of application is this?

Maybe there is a workaround to make it appear bigger.

You can try to run it in virtual vncserver and connect to it with client which supports resizing. That might work.

I'm executing qemu (to run panzer general).

Are you using vnc connector to qemu graphics?

If so then try to find vncclient which supports resizing. Im sure that tightvnc under windows does that (just checked). there is source code for linux and probably somewhere you can find compiled version for netwalker.

If not then Maybe someone will compile it for us all smile.gif

We should definitely have our repository... Anyone has Debian packaging abilities?
