Max display resolution lowered after old wine game. restarting/ timeshift couldn't fix it

after playing an old low res wine game on my laptop, the max display resolution was lowered to 960x540 on the ‘display’ program. couldn’t select anything higher, and the screen should be at least 1080p. restarting, powering down, timeshift didn’t work.
(manjaro XCFE)

oddly enough, during the login screen, it’s showing the proper higher resolution. then turns back to lower res upon logging in.

any ideas?

Can you please check ~/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/displays.xml and maybe there is something off there? You can delete it and it should properly regenerate next login …

thanks a lot bogdancovaciu!

deleted the xml file and it worked like a charm :slight_smile:
