BunsenLabs Lithium with Chipset SiS 661/741/760

Hello guys!
I have a problem solving in BunsenLabs Lithium.
Follows the specifications.
- PCChips A33G
- Chipset SiS 661/741/760.
- Driver vesa
- Resolution 640x480 @ 60 Hz
- Xorg 1.20

Detail is that in Debian 9 Xfce had a resolution of 1024x768 @ 60 Hz with a vesa driver.
When installing BunsenLabs I did not have this result.

Follow the link to image Debian 10 LXQt command inxi, to make it easier to understand but in BunsenLabs it is the same.

Thanks!

Re: BunsenLabs Lithium with Chipset SiS 661/741/760

You can try the following: big_smile

1. open arandr (picture1)
arandr1.th.png link

2. right click on the field (HDMI; LVDS) and choose your resolution (picture2)
arandr2.th.png link

3. click layout -> save as (choose a suitable name and location) (pic3)
arandr3.th.png link
Note: I have only done this in other distri's so far, bunsenlabs was not one of them.
           As name I choose screen_layout and location /usr/local/bin
           Since you are not root, you probably have to choose $HOME

4. select Layout -> Apply and close arandr (image4)
arandr4.th.png link

5. open a terminal, become root and enter

chmod 755 /usr/local/bin/screen_layout.sh

or in your case

sudo chmod 755 /home/$User/screen_layout.sh

and move that to

sudo mv /home/$User/screen_layout.sh /usr/local/bin/

Finally you have to put the script into your autostart of busenlabs, so that it will be executed on startup of the computer.

screen_layout.sh &

5. restart

Re: BunsenLabs Lithium with Chipset SiS 661/741/760

goltrek, just see if you can change resolutions with arandr.

If yes, follow unklar's advice - although I see no reason at all to put this under /usr/local, just save it under your $HOME somewhere.

If not, show us the output of

xrandr

Re: BunsenLabs Lithium with Chipset SiS 661/741/760

Yeah that doesn't look so good.

lspci -k | grep -A5 VGA
LC_ALL=C apt search xf86-video | grep installed

please.

My command said there should be 5 lines of trailing context, but that's only 3 lines?

Anyhow, it seems like you have to install the appropriate driver(s):
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/SiS
The nomenclature is a bit different than on Debian, but I'm sure you can figure it out.
Don't mess with Xorg settings unless you know that you have to. I think that part of the article is outdated.

Re: BunsenLabs Lithium with Chipset SiS 661/741/760

Thank you all so much for your help.
I will wait for next versions to try to correct the resolution.
It seems that in Debian 11 the Vesa driver will come with better support for Chipset SiS.
Thanks!
