Re: [edlug] screen resolution ubuntu karmic koala


thanks ! i don't know what to say ... i've experienced the same thing with jaunty (the previous version) and i have a 64 arch .. but indeed... it may apply

waiting can take some time :D meanwhile I would like to be able to use some resolution that doesn't require me to scroll horiz and vert to read every line of text on a web page...

gtf :D well I did not know about that

gtf 1200 800 60

  # 1200x800 @ 60.00 Hz (GTF) hsync: 49.68 kHz; pclk: 78.69 MHz
  Modeline "1200x800_60.00"  78.69  1200 1264 1392 1584  800 801 804 828  -HSync +Vsync

so if I interpret the output correctly than I can set the following:

HorizSync 30-50
VertRefresh 50-80

(do any of the other things tell me useful stuff, like DefaultDepth, Depth etc?)

This looks like "your" bug.

There's nothing stopping you maintaining /etc/X11/xorg.conf in Ubuntu.
It just tries to do stuff automagically these days, but you can
override that with your own settings.

gtf is a useful tool for generating modelines that you stuff into
xorg.conf... If that bug report is to be believed then the native
resolution is 1280x800.

alan@wopr64:~$ gtf 1280 800 60

  # 1280x800 @ 60.00 Hz (GTF) hsync: 49.68 kHz; pclk: 83.46 MHz
  Modeline "1280x800_60.00"  83.46  1280 1344 1480 1680  800 801 804
828  -HSync +Vsync
