[SOLVED] Forcing X server to only support monitor's native resolution

What Im trying to achieve is to change the output of `xrandr --q1` from this:

 SZ:    Pixels          Physical       Refresh
*0   1920 x 1080   ( 372mm x 207mm )  *50   52  
 1   1920 x 1200   ( 372mm x 230mm )   51  
 2   1680 x 1050   ( 325mm x 202mm )   53  
 3   1600 x 1200   ( 310mm x 230mm )   54  
 4   1440 x 900    ( 279mm x 173mm )   55  
 5   1366 x 768    ( 264mm x 147mm )   56  
 6   1280 x 1024   ( 248mm x 197mm )   57  
 7   1280 x 800    ( 248mm x 153mm )   58  
 8   1280 x 720    ( 248mm x 138mm )   59  
 9   1024 x 768    ( 198mm x 147mm )   60  
 10   800 x 600    ( 155mm x 115mm )   61  
 11   640 x 480    ( 124mm x  92mm )   62  
Current rotation - normal
Current reflection - none
Rotations possible - normal left inverted right 
Reflections possible - X Axis Y Axis

to this:

 SZ:    Pixels          Physical       Refresh
*0   1920 x 1080   ( 372mm x 207mm )  *50   52  
Current rotation - normal
Current reflection - none
Rotations possible - normal left inverted right 
Reflections possible - X Axis Y Axis

I tried the workaround suggested here https://wiki.winehq.org/FAQ#Broken_NVID … _RandR_1.0 but no luck.

Why do you want to do this? What is the problem you are attempting to solve?

Thank you but I don't think that's the case because it is supposed to fix/workaround a known bug.

Re: [SOLVED] Forcing X server to only support monitor's native resolution

That's the definition of an xy-problem.

1. do you inded get this error message (the wine bug is from 2013…)

err:winediag:xrandr12_init_modes Broken NVIDIA RandR detected, falling back to RandR 1.0. Please consider using the Nouveau driver instead.

2. Do you use the nvidia driver?
3. What's the ouput of "xrandr -q" and your xorg log, https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Xorg#General
4. https://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree86/ … tions.html - look for 'Option "ModeValidation" "string"'

4- I tried "ModeValidation" and a few other things like disabling EDID (Option "UseEDID" "FALSE") , adding modeline and other options to xorg.conf such as:

# 1920x1080 59.96 Hz (CVT 2.07M9) hsync: 67.16 kHz; pclk: 173.00 MHz
Modeline      "1920x1080_60.00"  173.00  1920 2048 2248 2576  1080 1083 1088 1120 -hsync +vsync
Option          "PreferredMode" "1920x1080_60.00"
....
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth          24
                Modes         "1920x1080"
        EndSubSection

but still can't have only one resolution as the "xrandr --q1" 's output. as you can see I already have only one resolution available for the primary display (my laptop's display), when I unplug the external display I get WINE working fine even with an empty xorg.conf file. this is a known bug in the WINE community and I am not looking for a solution to that specific problem here in lovely Arch Forum. I just need someone help me to achieve the single resolution output so MAYBE it could help me overcome the problem.

Re: [SOLVED] Forcing X server to only support monitor's native resolution

An alternate solution that I often use with WINE is gamescope.  You give the game a resolution and optionally display it at another with FSR if you want.  It should work with nVidia, it works fine with AMD.  With gamescope the WINE application gets one resolution and that's it - the one you gave it.  That would accomplish the same effect as getting xrandr to have only one mode.

Edit: gamescope also works with Linux games as well, it'll wrap anything.

Re: [SOLVED] Forcing X server to only support monitor's native resolution

I suggest to narrow the workaround by following headkase's suggestion.

Otherwise (if that fails):

I tried "ModeValidation"

"How"? It's not in your xorg log.
You've to make sure that no modeline is automatically edid by server or edid and only your user supplied is accepted.
In doubt, post your xorg.conf (s) w/ what you've tried.

adding modeline and other options

(merely) *adding* a modeline will not remove others…

Re: [SOLVED] Forcing X server to only support monitor's native resolution

There are a couple of workarounds such as switching to "wine-valve" or running wine in "Emulate a Virtual Desktop" mode - which I'm trying to avoid because wine-valve takes ages to compile and "emulated mode" is not a very productive feature. so here I am and this is what dear seth asked of me:

Don't use nvidia-settings to generate the config, it produces cruft.

We define a modeline for the output, using the outputs name as Identifier to have it auto-applied and instead of defining a useless screen, tell the nvidia driver how to handle stuff.
YOu might want to extend the metamodes w/ your internal display.

Re: [SOLVED] Forcing X server to only support monitor's native resolution

I copied your config and X totally ignored the new settings *sigh*. everytime I have a problem it is either nvidia or the Xserver or both involved! I think have to wait for the WINE 8 to hit the official repo as it seems they finally fixed the bug.

Re: [SOLVED] Forcing X server to only support monitor's native resolution

Sorry... I didn't fully understand your needs here, maybe I'm wrong, but... Did you have a look at Lutris's lutris-fshack ?

lutris-fshack

Same as lutris, but includes fshack, a software implementation of monitor modesetting (resolution changing), ported over from Proton. With it, your whole monitor will no longer modeset to a lower resolution if the game requests it, instead Wine itself will do it and only do it for the game itself. It may also improve fullscreen behavior for games that run in your native resolution, but results may vary from game to game. Additionally, due to fshack being quite big and modifying a lot of components, some fixes and patches that are used in normal lutris aren't compatible with it and thus missing.

(https://github.com/lutris/docs/blob/mas … eBuilds.md)

Thank you I just checked and it seems Lutris has patched their wine fork with https://bugs.winehq.org/attachment.cgi? … ction=diff so I guess that's the same story with "wine-valve". still Im trying to stick with vanilla WINE for some reason smile

I checked those files, nothing fancy there. the other thing I did was using "xvidtune -show" to find out the modeline Xserver detects and it was very different compared to the output of "cvt" and "gtf". so I used that but it did not help either, I got exactly the same results as before.

Post that file and just to be sure also /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-nvidia.conf
The config in #10 wasn't meant to be some replacement for those sections only, but to be the entire config.

Re: [SOLVED] Forcing X server to only support monitor's native resolution

Too bad gamescope went by without even an acknowledgement.  That would do it instead of tunnel-vision on Xorg settings.  Too bad.

You're correct, driver R515 minimum is needed.  That is where nVidia support began.

I really appreciate your response. the reason for tunnel vision is to find the answer as the topic suggests not just to workaround WINE since there are some ways in order to do that. maybe it could help someone else with a different problem or maybe it is just a nerdy way of looking at things wink it doesn't hurt to learn more.. ( or it does.. it actually hurts..)

Dear seth, I updated the "grep" output because at the time I had reverted my "xorg.conf" back to the original, but the Xorg log I provided was actually based on your settings. here is what you asked:

Right on, it's good - you're welcome.  Gamescope is a wrapping program.  You prepend it to a command you want.  Like:

gamescope -h 900  -H 1080 -f -U -- wine <wineprogram>

replace "wine <wineprogram>" with any executable.  The above gamescope parameters give the program a 900p screen and upscales it to 1080p with AMD FSR1.0 with the "-U" parameter.

Since it is a wrapper you can do it to any program, even native Linux ones.  It is a micro-compositor that provides a screen for whatever needs one.

A sensible attempt with your program could be:

gamescope -h 1080 -H 1080 -f -- <program>

Which means give a 1080p screen to the program, output a 1080p screen from that composition, and "-f" means fullscreen.  The two-dashes are part of the gamescope parameters and everything after is what you're launching.

Also, if it's a game you're launching then I highly recommend Lutris as a game manager, and ProtonUp-Qt to manage WINE runtimes.  The latter gets you access to the Glorious Eggroll WINEs that work so much better than vanilla WINE for gaming.  You don't want to use Proton directly because it has hard-coded options for working with Steam - it doesn't work properly anywhere but Steam.  ProtonUp-Qt offers WINE versions that have all the Proton changes but works outside of Steam (Lutris Glorious Eggroll ones).  In Lutris there is basic-built-in support for gamescope and you can use the command prefix option in a Lutris game's settings if you want specific options.

If this works you can use it for everything.  The minimum nVidia driver is R515 and the official repos are carrying R525.  So if you're in sync with the official repos then you should have what you need.

Edit: the only show-stopper is that it runs in Wayland.  If you can run Wayland you really should nowadays.

You're welcome again. wink  I'm familiar with the setups because it's what I use myself.  So I pieced it together over time, hopefully you'll recollect later when you can run the components. smile
