|I have a Hisense 40" Smart TV which doubles as my computer monitor, 1080p. Model: LTDN40K220WUS_1|
I have an XFX ATI Radeon 5770 HD video card, 1080p.
I am using Linux Mint 18.
I use an HDMI cable to attach the TV to the Computer so I can watch HD on my pc.
In Linux Mint 18 it displays too much, for instance when I open a browser I can't see the menu or the exit, minimize buttons; some of the display is off the screen.
In my other O.S. Mint 17.2 I installed Catalyst Control Center and that allowed me to resize the screen. I downloaded those drivers for Mint 18 although mint 18’s package base is 16.04 and mint 17.2’s is 14.04 but that broke 18, had to re-install mint.
After re-installing 18, I changed the default driver to the propriety driver (the choice in ‘Driver Manager’) and no help there. Just displaying too much. This is 1080x1920, I can go to a lower res but I don’t want that.
Does anyone have an idea how to make this display correctly ?
Do you think AMD/ATI will release a C.C.C. driver for 18 ?
