Subject description: just got puppy 431 to boot off of usb but can't figure out how to make it full screen?
 

i am sure it is a product of being brand new to linux/puppy, but i cannot seem to find a way to make puppy be centered on the screen as well as being full screen?

Use Magick Wink

Not helpful?
Perhaps give us more info about your system
and how you are running

I have an auto button on my LCD monitor and that centers - you may not have this - only magick would allow me to know Smile

guess i am too nu to "get it"!
have noticed a similar prob. with a couple of other pen drive linux distros since my last post....this problem plus the oft mentioned (from what I see in this forum) problem for newby like me: getting connected w/ a winmodem makes the process of learning linux,perhaps, more problem than it is worth?
thanks for your reply

By any chance are you using an old laptop? Some old Dell laptops had a problem with full screen.
This is where the 'Majick' of divination starts to kick-in. Without the full details of computer, be it a laptop/desktop, memory, video card, it becomes a guessing game; everyone will be stumped to suggest an easy solution.
