I don't know if this is the right place to ask about issues, but I'm also not sure it warrants a github issue.

1. Connected to HDMI monitor, but can't set screen resolution. No monitor is listed.
When I go to Menu -> Administration -> Settings -> Devices -> Displays there is a message "Could not get screen information"

2. Connected a trackball instead of mouse. All functions work, but changing mouse speed has no effect.
Menu -> Administration -> Settings -> Devices -> Mouse & Touchpad

Thanks

You can change resolution by editing /boot/config.txt directly.

Thanks, was able to set resolution manually.
But it would be practical to have this available in settings, do you know why it fails?
When searching the error message I find bug reports from 2016 relating to Gnome Control Center.

I draw blanks about the mouse speed.

Cheers

Thanks for the above,
I am able to set resolution of an attached HDMI screen, but I cannot seem to set the resolution used by VNC when no HDMI monitor is attached.
I have tried various combinations of these /boot/config.txt entries:
disable_overscan=1
framebuffer_width=1920
framebuffer_height=1080
hdmi_force_hotplug=1
hdmi_force_mode=82
hdmi_drive=2
hdmi_group=2
hdmi_mode=82

Your advice would be appreciated.
Thanks so much.

@aviljoen you might need one of these dummy hdmi dongles.
