    800x480 16x9 aspect ratio display


    I have a 800x480 tablet display which is physically 16x9 aspect ratio. Obviously 800x480 is 15x9 ratio so the 16x9 physical ratio has been achieved by using non-square pixels.

    How would a Linux OS GUI be made to display correctly in a display using non-square pixels ie. with a minus 1/16th compensation horizontally or a plus 1/16th compensation vertically.

    Hi. Have a look at the xorg.conf man page : you'll be able to specify the size of your screen, and X will compute the correct DPI for each axis.
