I'm using the original
EeePC with screen resolution of
800x480. Some screens and dialogs do not fit into that resolution, so I have to use
Alt-Drag to move windows around to reveal the bottom part of the window, but this doesn't work for a particular application I'm going to use since it's basically a fullscreen DirectX app running via wine, so some buttons are just cut off by the edge of the screen.
Is there a way to make
Xorg desktop to render at higher resolution (
1024px wide or so) and then transparently scaled down to the display's native resolution, so the applications think the resolution is bigger? I do not care much about output getting blurred or text getting too small.
Alternatively, is there a way to switch the video adapter to the resolution above physical resolution of the LCD screen and have the screen/video adapter itself to handle scaling (as used to be possible with CRT monitors)?
I'm using Lubuntu 12.04 so I guess have
Compiz installed. There is Scale plugin in
Compiz, but I don't think it does what I need.
