       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 options).

       -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 Kernel.

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