This seems to be an issue only when booting in multi-user mode. Starting XFCE, the windows seem to come up just fine with no missing parts on the menu bars or icons.
I copied the following config.txt settings from Raspbian's config.txt boot file and inserted them right after the "dtoverlay=rpi3-hdmi" setting in TW 4.16.6:
but the HDMI behavior in multi-user mode didn't change (not surprising, but I had hoped that fixing it would be just that simple).
Code: Select all
hdmi_force_hotplug=1 config_hdmi_boost=4 overscan_left=24 overscan_right=24 overscan_top=16 overscan_bottom=16 disable_overscan=0
I referred to the site referenced in the config.txt header, "https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentati ... /README.md" and the video settings it cites, and so I also tried "hdmi_safe=1". While that resulted in REALLY BIG letters during initial boot, the login screen was similarly cut off on the left.
Any suggestions where else I might look or settings I should change? It appears to be an issue with rpi3-hdmi, but I can't find documentation on how to change its settings.
This is only a minor nuisance, but as I frequently run in multi-user mode, I'd like to fix it for myself. In general, the graphical support in XFCE seems faster and the system more responsive. Whoever's doing this work: Nice job!
