I installed debian 5 in a pc with a Intel 4 series VGA. The optimal resolution for the monitor is 1360x76, but the system does not allow that. I tried to change my xorg.conf, but got no success.In my xorg.conf I used this:
for some reason I got taping on touchpad is disabled after some software upgrade or something.I can enable it with synclient TapButton1=1, etc.. but have got to do it every time I reboot. Also, I don't have Xorg.conf file. Is there any way I can configure taping to work permanently ?
While trying to implement some of the suggestions in the fedora 12 common problems (Intel Graphics)I discovered I cannot get the resolution correct using a xorg.conf file . Here is the file# Xorg configuration created by system-config-display

monitor is a Optiquest Q19wb. I normally have is set on 1280x1024, but fedora will only go to 800x600. It has detected the monitor correctly. Not sure if being connected to KVM will cause issues. The xorg.conf does not exist. Have installed system-config-display but have not run yet.
I'm trying to get my screen resolution set in Mythbuntu 9.10, but there is no xorg.conf on my system! I'm trying to figure out what to do (the xfce tool on mythbuntu doesn't offer the correct resolution, and I'm not even sure what driver I'm using). I've seen other threads saying to run nvidia-setup or somesuch. I assume the appropriate tool in my case would be aticonfig (I saw that elsewhere too) as I'm using an ATI Radeon 9600XT, but that tool says:
I need to find notes on how to achieve higher screen resolution via Xorg.conf and some other fixes since I just installed the NVIDIA driver... seems out of the box, my resolution is horrid, though theres an added NVIDIA Server and my dual monitors aren't configured to work. I used this tutorial to get the driver installed.
I am trying to run using WINE. It has a platinum rating on the site, and runs perfectly on my laptop.on my desktop it doesn't seem to run at all.The screen goes black,then brings me back to the desktop. I manually ran the WINE command in the terminal, and it produced the error "err11settings:X11DRV_ChangeDisplaySettingsE x No matching mode found 320x200x8 @0! (XRandR)". The laptop and desktop are both running the same version of WINE (1.3.3) and have similar Nvidia cards (laptop has a mobile 9600, desktop has a 9800). I found a bug report on this exact issue on the WINE website (I'll paste a link), and they mention that the solution is simply to add the 320x200x8 resolution mode to Xorg.conf.
I've tried generating the line that I may need with a web-based modeline calculator, referenced on another thread, but it caused my system to fail booting. Luckily, I backed up xorg.conf before making changes and restored the old one via recovery mode. Here's the link to the calculator, I may just be using it wrong: [URL]
Since the display of my notebook doesn't work very well anymore, straight vertical blue line on the right side of the screen, I want to connect an external monitor. (ADI [it doesn't say the exact model] 21 inch; resolution 1600x1200 and 85 Hz refresh rate).
I'm using Ubuntu 9.10 with kernel 184.108.40.206 and xrandr does not recognize the monitor correctly (see code of xrandr output). Adding a new mode did not work and currently it displays a resolution of 1200x768 which is horrible. In this version of Ubuntu the xorg.conf is not used anymore and is thus empty. As I have read you could create an entry in a new xorg.conf for your hardware which would be used by Ubuntu, having priority over xrandr settings.
But I do not really know what the monitor section in xorg.conf would have to look like, as the original screen would have to be set to 1200x768 or be disabled all together. The screens would have to be mirrored. Would the setting also work, when the external monitor is not connected to the notebook, so the original screen would display everything correctly.
Here some information about the system which will hopefully be useful for you. Please post helpful links I have overlooked or ask for more information.
My onboard graphics intel chip is capable of a resolution of 1600x1200 as it works in Windows:
lscpi output for graphics chip:
loaded kernel modules (relevant lines, at least I hope) according to lsmod (the driver from Intel web page is totally outdated and I think this is not the problem, so I didn't consider compiling a new driver)
I have a wacom graphire3 tablet and two monitors. The tablet is workin properly with out of the box drivers.
As well as the dual monitors configured as twinview through Nvidia X server. But the tablet is mapped for the two screens, then I searched the forums for a proper configuration and it it tells me to edit the xorg.conf file for twinview horizontal but, it don't make any difference. I've "sudo gedit" edited the xorg.conf and nothing happens. Nothing, the tablet is working properly, the system is stable and it's still mapped for two screens.
What can I do? The xorg.conf also isn't listing all my hardware, I can't see the confs for my mouse. I'm on karmic koala.
All I need to do is get my screen resolution to 1024x768, I can currently only get 800x600 and that's unacceptable for school. I created an xorg.conf file in Lucid and it does in fact refer to and use it. what led me to believe that is when I looked in the mirror and noticed smoke slowly rolling out of my ears! After replacing some of that smoke with a cigarette I decided to make this thread. As I said, I created the xorg.conf.new file with:
Code: sudo Xorg -configure from recovery mode. And then moved it to its proper place with:
And that nested it right where it needs to be. X does in fact use it as confirmed by my Xorg.0.log.
Now I have an xorg.conf file, but am quickly becoming overwhelmed with information as to what to do. I've tried to create mode lines with xrandr, which gave me new settings, but I was unable to use them. Obviously the EDID info. is not being read because there is no mention of clock speed, Vsync or Hsync in my Xorg.0.log either. I have tried many things and really don't have time to spend all day at my computer, at least not with this issue. I'm in school and have to focus primarily on that right now. I will give what info I know is relevant starting with my monitor specs:
Dynex DX-LCDTV19 vertical resolution: 720 p aspect ratio: 16:10 screen refresh rate: 60hz comb filter: 3D/YC digital
I've just done a fresh install of Lubuntu 10.10 on an older Sony Vaio laptop. Having learned the hard way about editing xorg files, I wanted to create a backup of the xorg.conf file so that I dont have to do another install when I screw everything up. In a terminal, I typed
I have set up my Ubuntu virtual machine and am trying to adjust the screen resolution because it's stuck at 800x600 presently and there are no higher resolution options. I've looked at numerous similar forms and tutorials online and they all seem to involve editing /etc/X11/xorg.conf. However, for whatever reason, this file seems not to exist on my machine. I found another tutorial on how to add a screen resolution using xrandr --addmode which added the resolution I want to the list that appears when I type the command xrandr, but when I try to apply it I get an error about CRTC 262 failing.
I currently have 2 GPUs in my system both ATI. The primary is a HD4870 and the secondary is a HD4350.
I have a 24" and a 17" running in twin view from the 4870 but I can't figure out a way to enable my third monitor to display anything at all, I have tried multiple configurations but I end up breaking the xorg every time.
All I simply want to do is keep my twinview on the monitors run by the 4870 but have the third monitor as a separate X session so I can still use compiz. Here is my xorg file, it was generated by aticonfig.
I did fresh install of Slackware64 ver. 13.0 and immediately updated it to slackware-current by following the directions here: http://slackwiki.org/Upgrading_SlackwareSo far all is normal and functional except for xorg-server.When I did Xorg -configure under ver.13.0, it worked perfectly and detected my nvidia 8800 GTS vidcard and 1440 x 900 lcd monitor.However, after upgrading to "current" and xorg-server-1.9.4, I'm getting a segmentation fault and cannot configure a working xorg.conf.I've been searching xorg seg errors, but haven't found a solution yet.My /var/log/Xorg.0.log:

my laptop screen has 1900x1280 (native resolution) and my second monitor has 1600x1080
After browsing the forums and messing around with drivers I managed to get the resolution up to 1600x1080 (from 1000x800 at install) on the laptop screen. No luck at all with the second monitor. I currently have it connected with both VGA and DVI.
my understanding is I need to use twin view to setup the second monitor. I've read several of the earlier posts but haven't been able to get it to work. Here is my current xorg.conf file:
I have Ubuntu (running Jolicloud) on my HP dv2000 laptop, connected to my Sony AV Receiver through HDMI to use the TV as an external monitor. However, the resolution seems to be slightly off as the outer edges of the screen are cut off. Is there a way to fix this by editing the xorg.conf file? My current setup is below. I tried adding the line "Virtual 1244 700" to the subsection "display", but when I restarted it threw me into low graphics mode. Is there anything else I can try?
I also tried setting up the resolution at 1920x1080 on the TV and kept the default resolution on the monitor as 1280x800, and as you would expect displays the entire desktop in a smaller version on part of the tv. However, the desktop is still offset, leaving the top and left margins cut off. So, perhaps I need a way to offset the screen? Is this possible in xorg.conf?
I have installed Kubuntu 8.04.2 on a USB stick with persistence to keep any changes I make after a reboot and it works fine. I then installed the 185 Nvidia driver to give me higher resolutions and it works fine.
But each time I reboot, my updated xorg.conf is replaced with the default xorg.conf that ships with that version of Kubuntu and a backup is made of my updated xorg.conf (the correct one) which looks like xorg.conf.20100409135913. I have to put the backup xorg.conf back in place to get my Nvidia driver to work with the correct screen resolutions again. Otherwise my screen resolution is too low.
What could be causing this behavor? I'm sure it not the persistence feature of the USB stick failing since a backup is made of my original xorg.conf.
I might add more information. The xorg.conf that gets changed after a reboot says "This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using # values from the debconf database." #
1. What is the difference between files (xorg.conf and xorg.conf-vesa)
2. No matter how hard I try I can't change keyboard layout in xorg.conf-vesa (I change it in file ) but there is no actually anything changing, it starts to get annoying - for example - below goes my xorg.conf-vesa, if I uncomment and set line from
When i want to configure my touchpad on my dell inspiron 1525 with debian lenny then i got this message: gsynaptics couldnt initialize you have to set 'shmconfig' 'true' in xorg.conf or xf86config to use gsynaptics My touchpad is an alps and not a synaptics so far i can see. My xorg.conf is this: [URL]
I've read the how-tos (thank you oldcpu!) and wikis about how xorg.conf take precedence over the section configuration files in etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/, if it exist. I also understand that the xorg.conf can be partial. If it is missing some sections, these will be taken from the corresponding xorg.conf.d section config file. Currently I'm using a xorg.conf generated by nvidia-settings in one of my home machines, due to a dual-monitor setup. After generating xorg.conf, the device sections are:
My question is if the Option "UseCompositeWrapper" "True" will be used or not. In other words, if a section exist in xorg.conf then it's correspondent in xorg.conf.d/ will be completely ignored *or* only the lines in xorg.conf.d/ that already exist in xorg.conf will be ignored?
I'm running the ubuntu based Green OS and cant get my video card properly configured. i've already gone through the forums to figure out what i need to do to get my ATI card working but my system wont let me access the xorg.conf file. i can see it using the the GOS file editor but it wont let me save the modifications. when i attempt to edit from a terminal window with su privelages it tells me that /etc/x11/xorg.conf does not exist. i've even tried booting into recovery mode and using the root instead of the sudo command. nothing i've tried will let me open the file.
I looked for a solution to this,and found a thread for it ,but I dont know how to do what it says.Here is part of it by the user "cameronol": There is a bug in Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic with the default /etc/X11/xorg.conf involving Nvidia. receive the error"Failed to parse existing X config file '/etc/X11/xorg.conf'.Then he posts:
Then he says to delete the first section with the default screen,and it will be fixed.But HOW do I look for the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file to edit it,and how do I edit it?I am new to ubuntu,but I have learned to use a terminal(I think)It seems to be just like the "run" box on Windows.I did a search for the file,but came up empty.I want to fix this cause every time I restart,I have a low resolution that is impossible to work in.
