       intel_panel_fitter - Change the panel fitter settings


       intel_panel_fitter [options]


       intel_panel_fitter is a tool that allows you to change the panel fitter
       settings, so you can change the size of the screen being  displayed  on
       your  monitor without changing the real pixel size of your desktop. The
       biggest use case for this tool is to work around overscan done  by  TVs
       and some monitors in interlaced mode.

       -p [pipe]
              pipe  to be used (A, B or C, but C is only present on Ivy Bridge
              and newer).

       -x [value]
              final screen width size in pixels (needs -p option).

       -y [value]
              final screen height size in pixels (needs -p option).

       -d     disable panel  fitter  (needs  -p  option,  ignores  -x  and  -y

       -l     list current state of each pipe.

       -h     prints the help message.


       intel_panel_fitter -l
              will  list  the  current  status of each pipe, so you can decide
              what to do.

       intel_panel_fitter -p A -x 1850 -y 1040
              will change the pipe A size to 1850x1040 pixels.

       intel_panel_fitter -p A -d
              will disable the panel fitter for pipe A.


       In the future, there will be support for this feature inside the  Linux

       Machines  older  than Ironlake are still not supported, but support may
       be possible to implement.
