This is my first time using linux seriously, and I’m confused on what commands to run after reading the xrandr article on ArchWiki. My problem is that the 2nd monitor connected to my laptop has all the margins extending past the physical screen. It’s also at the correct resolution of 1920x1080i. I just need help with how to scale the whole screen down. (On Windows, i used Intel Graphics Control Panel to adjust a custom aspect ratio for this monitor. Which was just adding padding on the sides that can’t be seen on the physical screen. ) I don’t know how much exactly would I need to pad each side of the screen.
I don’t know if this will be of any context but heres what xrandr shows.
Screen 0: minimum 8 x 8, current 3840 x 1080, maximum 32767 x 32767
