    Fedora 30 resolution issue

    Ok, so I have a desktop that I have installed Fedora 30 on but I'm getting an issue with the screen resolution. It's a 4k screen and no matter what screen resolution I use the issue remains. It shows on the monitor but the edges are cut off (I can move the mouse off screen and hit buttons but they don't show on the screen). How do I fix the scaling so that it fits the screen? I have used the normal settings option and the resolution changes but never fits to the screen - it always goes outside the screen borders.

    System specs -
    Fresh install of Fedora 30
    Ryzen 7 1700
    X370 motherboard
    32gb ddr4 @ 3066 MHz
    256gb nvme boot drive
    8tb hard drive
    RedDragon Vega 56 graphics card
    850 watt power supply
    Acer freesync 28" 4k monitor

    This sounds more like the setting of the monitor. Check on the monitor menu to see if there is a way to fit the video input to monitor screen. Although it's a monitor, it may be set to scale to video devices depending on the settings. Also try a different type of cable to see if that helps.

    Re: Fedora 30 resolution issue

    I solved this issue, I thought I made a post explaining I found the issue. It was a setting on the monitor. I had never seen that issue before like that, it was the ratio setting on the monitor set to use the full wide screen - it works perfectly on the 1:1 setting instead.

    Thank you for the reply.
