vnc server fixed resolution

Hello everyone,

This is my last resort.

I have searched the internet everywhere using different search engines as well.

I am using Redhat 7 where I activated a vncserver (since it comes pre-installed).
using the following service:
Description=Remote desktop service (VNC)

# Clean any existing files in /tmp/.X11-unix environment
ExecStartPre=/bin/sh -c '/usr/bin/vncserver -kill %i > /dev/null 2>&1 || :'
ExecStart=/usr/sbin/runuser -l wvleider -c "/usr/bin/vncserver %i -geometry 1680x1050 -depth 32"
ExecStop=/bin/sh -c '/usr/bin/vncserver -kill %i > /dev/null 2>&1 || :'


as you can see there is a -geometry parameter that is set to 1680x1050. this is the resolution i want the client to use no matter what client uses the VNC.

So far i have found out that xrandr is used within RedHat to change the resolution in an active session, meaning that it should be configurable somehow..

xrandr provides me some resolutions as preset, i tried to remove all resolutions i find unnecesary but xrandr does not allow me.

does anyone know how to fix the resolution server-side?

Thanks in advance!

XpSetImageResolution(3Xp)					 XPRINT FUNCTIONS					 XpSetImageResolution(3Xp)

XpSetImageResolution - Sets the resolution for subsequent PutImage requests
cc [ flag... ] file... -lXp [ library... ] #include <X11/extensions/Print.h> Bool XpSetImageResolution ( display, print_context, image_res, prev_res_return ) Display * display ; XPContext print_context ; int image_res ; int * prev_res_return ;
- display Specifies a pointer to the Display structure. - print_context Specifies the print context on which to set the resolution. - image_res Specifies the image resolution in pixels per inch. - prev_res_return Returns the previous image resolution in pixels per inch.
XpSetImageResolution returns True if the printer server allowed the resolution to be set, otherwise False is returned. XpSetImageResolution sets the resolution for subsequent PutImage requests to the screen of the specified print context. If the return value is False, then the print server does not support image scaling for the particular resolution given the current configuration of the printer, and the application is responsible for any desired scaling. If the return value is True, then the contents of any subsequent PutImage request to a Pixmap or to a Window on the screen of the specified print context will automatically be scaled as part of the PutIm- age request. The scale factor is: default_printer_resolution / image_res Where default_printer_resolution is the current value of that page attribute. Only the image itself is scaled (meaning the effective width and height of the image change), the dst-x and dst-y parameters to PutImage are not altered. As a special case, a value of zero for image_res resets the resolution to automatically track the printer resolution; in this case (which is also the default setting for a newly created print context), subsequent images will not be scaled. If the return value is True and prev_res_return is a non-NULL pointer, then the previous image resolution that was set for the print con- text is stored in prev_res_return. XpSetImageResolution returns False immediately if image_res is negative or greater than 65535.
