4K display laptop Centos 7 minimal install

Post by mpbf » 2018/01/23 16:08:33

Hi,

I just installed a dual boot on my windows laptop, so I could install Centos 7.
I successfully completed the minimal install of Centos 7.

However my prompt is tiny. I have a 4K screen on my laptop (assus with nvidia 950M card).

I tried xranr but it says "display cannot open".
I dont have xorg.conf file.

I tried to look up online a lot of options, that dont work for me.

I didnt install GUI, just the minimal install of Centos 7. I want to install everything I need later on my own.

The weird thing is that on another partition I install the gnome version of Centos 7, and everything seems to at the correct size by default. I didn't do anything.

So I am thinking, maybe with the minimal install there is some packages I need to install to be able to have a correct size of prompt.

I really run out of ideas.

Could anyone help me please?

Thanks

If you installed the minimal version then you don't have a GUI to change using xrandr. Most likely you just need to tell it to use a bigger font. Perhaps this might help? viewtopic.php?t=55267

You cannot run `startx` via an ssh session.

Unfortunately, the changes were not effective
Can anyone log in to my server and correct it?

Finally installed
But it's not recommended on centos and it's better to install Ubuntu

thanks
