Screen Resolutions (Driver Issues?)
I've been using Debian Linux for several years now. This is a problem that has persisted with me since Lenny (I'm currently running Wheezy). I am using a widescreen monitor. My computer dual-boots Windows Vista and Debian, and on the Windows side, the resolution which appears properly on my monitor (i.e. no black bars, not stretched beyond the borders of the monitor) is constantly changing with each new NVidia driver update -- sometimes it's 1170x664, sometimes 1280x720, etc. Always a 16:9 resolution.
On the Linux side, however, I have only ever been given one resolution option: 1280x720. This resolution has never worked, however. The screen is always stretched beyond the physical borders. I have been able to work around the problem in the past by increasing the height of my two taskbars on the top and bottom of the screen (I'm using GNOME, by the way), and manually resizing each program's windows. However, with the new upgrade to Wheezy, it no longer lets me do that on GNOME or GNOME Classic, making this a more urgent problem.
The driver that my computer is currently reporting is "Gallium 0.4 on NV96". It's using an NVidia GT 120 card. This has been the same card that has been in this computer since I installed Debian.
Any help would be appreciated. I'm unsure if there is any more information that is necessary to supply, but I will willingly supply more if needed. Thank you for your time.
