Unhappy D-link Kvm Switches, Change my Linux Resolution


Hello All.
I use D-link Kvm Switches and When I back to my Linux via this Switch, My Desktop Resolution changed and become very Large Icons, I use below command to back it to Normal Resolution but my monitor OFF and I must Reboot the system :

xrandr -s 1027x768

I use Debian System.

How can I solve it ?

Thanks

AGAIN you are not providing ANY useful details. Like what the "large icons" resolution is, what model Dlink KVM you're using, what kind of monitor, etc. Not sure why we have to keep telling you these things after so many posts, nor why you ignore it. And what do you mean by "my monitor OFF and I must reboot"? Do you mean when you turn your monitor off, it REBOOTS your system? To get the picture back you have to reboot? And have you tried just restarting X, with a CTRL-ALT-Backspace?

And you can 'solve it' by reading the manual on the hardware you have. There are several versions, different firmware, with different hardware options. Some support different resolutions.

WHAT "not worked"? What did you do/try? You don't answer ANY of the questions asked of you, and typically don't. Unless you start cooperating with others here, and answering questions, and giving details, there is NO POINT IN YOU POSTING HERE AT ALL.

Hey, You just ask some questions that not help me. I guess you want to launch a Social Engineering. I told you that I use Debian 7.

It is very similar in Windows users too, when a Windows user use KVM, The Display changed .

The QUESTIONS aren't the issue...YOU DID NOT ANSWER THEM IS. If you don't say what you did/tried, how can ANYONE tell you anything?

No idea what you're even talking about.

No, you said you use "Debian system"...go back and re-read your first post. And you were also asked what model switch, and several OTHER questions that you just flat out ignored. AGAIN: answer questions asked, acknowledge what's been told to you, and you can get help. You've been here long enough, and have been told enough times to provide details, that you should KNOW THIS BY NOW.

...and back to YOU PROVIDE NO DETAILS. Windows WHAT??? What do you mean by "display changed"??? Is this the same switch/hardware, with a different OS? If so, then (AGAIN), things are pointing BACK to the KVM, which you STILL don't give us any details about.

I have a kvm that causes display resolution problems. I think it's because the kvm doesn't pass EDID information from the monitor. The only solution I found was to use a different kvm.

Exactly the kind of thing I've been trying to get the OP to answer. Some KVM's won't, some have BIOS issues that can be fixed with an upgrade, and some are low-end models that wont' do ANY high-res at all.

Wow, great...you still don't tell us what model the KVM was; if other users come here looking for a solution, they're not going to be able to find it, since you haven't shared any details.

Export your monitor's EDID to file. Add "CustomEDID" option to xorg.conf, this option must point to saved EDID file.
"CustomEDID" = "/where/your/file/saved"
Instead of trying to retrieve EDID from monitor (that impossible when monitor disconnected by switch), driver will use settings from your file.

How can I create a custom EDID on debian 7?
I don't install my Nvidia Graphic cars and I use NOUVEAU. In your opinion can it make any problem?

get-edid: get-edid version 2.0.0

Performing real mode VBE call
Interrupt 0x10 ax=0x4f00 bx=0x0 cx=0x0
mem_write: address 0x7fff276cffe8 out of range!
halt_sys: file, line -1466161408
