I would like to know command line to change screen resolution to 800x600 px.
I used to launch Whonix-Gateway with graphical KDE desktop but it’s too “heavy” for my old machine.
I am sorry to say, this isn’t any easier than it is. Also related:
Default resolution for non-graphical Whonix-Gateway should be 1024x768 by default. Isn’t this the default for you already? (Could be…) Is 1024x768 too much for your monitor?
This can be configured in /etc/default/grub.
sudo nano /etc/default/grub
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="vga=0x0317 apparmor=1 security=apparmor"
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="vga=0x0315 apparmor=1 security=apparmor"
And see if it worked.
The 0x0315 is the magic value here. It may depend on your individual hardware. You may need to run “sudo apt-get install hwinfo” and “hwfinfo --framebuffer” to find out these values. See also search term “How do I increase console-mode resolution?”.

Hi, I’m trying to get higher resolution to my Gateway guest in Virtualbox (fresh install) because it’s really tiny now.
I’ve checked the file you mentioned but I couldn’t find that line in its present version.
Well there’s a line that says :
Any idea of what I should do now ?
Figure out doing it using Debian jessie as per https://www.whonix.org/wiki/About#Based_on_Debian. That gives you access to a much bigger support community. After learning how to do that, the same solution should work for Whonix since it’s based on Debian jessie.
Hi, despite the searches I’ve made I couldn’t find any solution to this problem.
If someone knows what to do, would he/she be kind enough to help ?
This got better with VirtualBox VMSVGA.

Will be default in Whonix
