Didn't work on my netbook - desktop extended past the bottom of my screen, but would not pan.  Perhaps this has something to do with cb-hotcorners in Waldorf?

Disabled both cb-hotcorners and cb-compositor and restarted; still doesn't work as advertised.

Re: Fun with xrandr and tiny Netbook screens :)

nice how-to!
i don't have a netbook but was curious and wanted to try it out on my laptop. so i changed a few parameters based on the output of plain 'xrandr' (without arguments), and it worked. but i couldn't scroll either, and i'm on Feb'11 Statler > Sid. no hot-corners or anything.
btw, setting it back when you don't see where you type is annoying. figure out a bit late that i could just not run my terminal fullscreen smile

There's a patched synaptics driver that lets you rotate the axis of the touchpad, so when the screen is rotated, the touchpad can rotate too and up is still up, left is still left, etc.

Re: Fun with xrandr and tiny Netbook screens :)

From what I have read its a bug with xorg not xrandr. A guide to downgrade xorg may fix xrandr.

I have experienced same thing in other distros.

Re: Fun with xrandr and tiny Netbook screens :)

FYI: This appears to be working in Waldorf now.

A few weeks ago I popped a new HDD in my Netbook to test out Windblows-8. Recently I added a fresh install of Waldorf off the latest ISO as well. This evening I stumbled across this thread while looking for something else and decided to give it a try again.

It worked!

Tried both 1024x768 squished and panned. Both are working on my Acer AO532h Netbook.

Aloha, Tim

Re: Fun with xrandr and tiny Netbook screens :)

Thank you for this gem.

I have an Asus eee 1000H that is set up with Linux Mint 17.2 and have been having problems with programs greater than my 1024x600 screen size.

Using your first example allows me to scroll up or down and see the whole screen.

cool

talk about necro-posting, but for those who own one of those netbooks it's a precious tip.
