xrandr to rescale the resolution on a netbook (Ubuntu 12.10). When I run the following command it works fine:
xrandr --output LVDS1 --mode 1024x600 --panning 1280x720 --scale 1.25x1.2
However when I put that command into
.xprofile to load it at startup the screen has a black border in the expanded area rather than the proper output. I'm using exactly the same command so I'm not sure why it's not working.
