Hi guys,

Planning to buy an elo touch 1366x768px display, 16:9, 15”
Can anyone tell me if pathpilot can scale to this resolution and aspect ratio?
I saw tormach sells 17” displays with 5:4 aspect ratio.

you may take a look at the new linuxcnc qtvcp GUI
there you can put your system together as you like

Pathpilot got a initation file where you can set screenwidt on aspect i cand say depending on what plugins you load it may not fit 16:9

The PathPilot installation sets the resolution to a fixed value (I think 1024x768) and then the screen has to deal.
I'm using a 16:9 screen, and the PathPilot interface is stretched a bit -- round toolpaths looks slightly oval (stretched sideways) because of this.

I would expect the 5:4 aspect ratio (1280x1024) to also be stretched, unless there's some secret magic I don't know about to change the aspect/resolution.

From early on in pathpilotmanager.py:
if mgr.set_monitor_resolution(1024, 768) is True:
            # we just changed monitor resolution
            # we have to restart pathpilotmanager.py so that GTK gets the proper monitor
            # resolution so its screen centering math is correct.
            sys.exit(const.EXITCODE_RESOLUTIONCHANGE)

ALL Pathpilot images are fixed graphics designed for the 1024x768 screen (a 15" monitor) everything is going to stretch if you don't maintain the aspect ratio which of course means it a 5:4 screen on a 16:9 monitor. all the PP code does is insure it fits in the screen correctly (ie centered)

if you look at the ~/tmc/python/images (i think) directly you can see all the images.
