I removed it and installed winehq-staging, just wanted to what was different. I had problems installing it too. Did the old version and then updated which went fine.

Re: Need to Change Resolution

My guess is that nvidia-xconfig has not been able to read your monitor specs and has entered too restrictive figures in xorg.conf. I suspect that because that happened with my (now deceased) SyncMaster 19" monitor. In your xorg.conf you should have a section that looks like this: Section "Monitor" ...

Re: Need to Change Resolution

Tried that and it was 303.137-5 instead of -1. On reboot I have a black screen and flashing line. The...

Re: Need to Change Resolution

It might be that the free "nouveau" driver from Debian Stretch that's our default does not support your card. How old is it? The proprietary Nvidia driver might give you a better result. If you really want to stick with the open source driver, we have a newer version, backported from Deban testing,...
