RasPi A4 Screen Res
Up and running sort of. Bad Samsung power cable took a while to find.

The Coby TV is really 1366x768 as run from Ubuntu 12.10 from my netbook.

Pupply is displaying 1280x720 out of the middle of the 1366x768, filling the screen which means the left, right, top, and bottom go off the screen so I can't reach icons/applets on the bottom etc.

Tried the puppy X wizard which complained when I said too wide/too tall. Guess I'll guts an xorg.conf unless someone reading this has some ideas.

Thanks. Enjoying Puppy on the RasPi except for Chromium - I've a preference for Midori...

re raspi screen
Hello jerrylamos

You may have to tweak the overscan settings, please read the release notes. There is no "one size fits all" unfortunately, at this stage anyway.

Raspberry Pi Config.txt
Puppy is up, reasonable to set up except I can't find Raspberry Pi's config.txt to set overscan, clocking, etc.

Where's the file? Which folder? What filename?

Thanks, Jerry

mount the first partition, it will then be obvious

Pi Setup
Problem was the left and right and top and bottom lines fell off the screen and couldn't see the border buttons. With another pc I found the first partition and set the overscan to 20 left and right and 16 top and bottom. It's a 1366x768 at 60hz normally.
While I was at it, added this to config.txt:
#uncomment to overclock the arm. 700 MHz is the default.
Seems to work on most Pi's without overvolt.
It's an 8 GB SD so expanded the partition from about 4 GB to 7 GB
Oh, yes, copied in a 192x32 memory split start.elf
Seems to be runnng O.K. Thanks for the distro.
