I have the situation that I have a LCD display that I would like to use but I want to have a "black unused frame" around the displayed content. Is there a kernel setting which controls the used dimensions of the detected screen?

  • You can perform screen transformation with xrandr. See unix.stackexchange.com/q/127911/80886 for related problem. – jimmij Jan 3 at 22:59
  • Hey jimmij, thanks for the answer. That should work for the X server. Do you happen to know if that's also possible for the linux console (where no X server needs to be running)? – Daniel Bischof Jan 4 at 12:40
  • Unfortunately, I don't. – jimmij Jan 4 at 14:19
