I am using the Raspberry Pi on a standard definition TV. I have used frame buffer and overscan to get the image to fit the screen and have readable font. Due to the reduction in resolution, when running the desktop environment on Debian, the windows fall off the screen, this is strange because the panel across the bottom is clearly visible, having typed just a few lines of code, I find that I can no longer see what I am typing, as it is off the screen, after pressing the enter key a few times I can see that the code is there.
I believe that it isn't a problem with the screen resolution due to the fact that the whole desktop is visible, it is the windows (when maximised) that get cut off the screen.
Any ideas on how to resolve this issue would be greatly appreciated.
