DefaultDepth 24 then under the "SubSection" of Depth 24, i have added:

Modes "1680x1050" "1028X768" "800x600"

but then whenever i am try to start the X, it fails with the following message: no screen found...

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Get Screen Resolution Set In Mythbuntu 9.10 - No Xorg.conf

Feb 13, 2010

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:

Code:

aticonfig: No supported adapters detected

General :: Increasing Screen Resolution To 1024x800 In Ubuntu - No Xorg.conf File?

Mar 2, 2011

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.

Ubuntu :: Xorg.conf And External Monitor - Resolution Seems To Be Slightly Off As The Outer Edges Of Screen Are Cut Off

Sep 24, 2010

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?

Debian Configuration :: Blank Screen On Boot. Graphics Card Not In Xorg.conf?

Jul 10, 2010

I've been using ubuntu on a new desktop for a couple of months, but i had an old HP that was given to me in my basement. It has 384Mb of ram, and thats because i had a 256Mb stick laying around. I installed debian becuase it is more suited for older hardware (at least from what I've read). It installed fine, but it boots to a blank screen, and pressing ctrl+alt+F2 bring me to the command line. I checked /etc/X11/xorg.conf to change the driver to vesa, to find out my video card isn't even shown. I ran lspci and I found that it says my graphics card is Intel Corporation 82810E DC-133 (CGC) Chipset graphics controller (rev3) In the device section of xorg.conf, it merly says Identifier"Configured Video Device"

FC12-x86_64/KDE How can I lock in the 1024x768 resolution in xorg.conf ?

The Option PreferredMode is Ignored , checking in Xorg-0-log.

If I put in Modes "1024x768" it gets changed everytime I reboot.

I'm using the Nvidia driver. Can't use the nouveau driver, the mouse disappears when waking the computer up after about a half hour of sleep, then I have to restart computer to get mouse to reappear.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Add 320x200x8 Resolution/Mode To Xorg.conf?

Oct 1, 2010

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]

Hardware :: Creating Xorg.conf In Ubuntu 9.10 For Monitor Resolution

Mar 9, 2010

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 2.6.31.17 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:

Code:

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)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Xorg.conf Setting Up Native Resolution 1900x1200 & Dual Monitor

Jun 19, 2011

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:

Code:
Section "Monitor"
# HorizSync source: edid, VertRefresh source: edid
Identifier "Configured Monitor"
VendorName "Unknown"

Hardware :: Xorg.conf Is Replaced With A Default Xorg.conf After Reboot ?

Apr 9, 2010

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." #

OpenSUSE Install :: Change /etc/X11/xorg.conf From NVidia To Nv To Get A X To Run In Xen?

I have the nVidia driver on my desktop kernel set-up but have to change /etc/X11/xorg.conf from nVidia to nv to get a X to run in Xen. Whilst this works, is there a way to tell Xen at boot time to use nv rather than nVidia so I don't have to edit xorg.conf each time?

Hardware :: Forcing Xorg.conf To Not Change (no Detection)

May 3, 2010

I have a home theatre setup, where the hdmi output from my nvidia card goes to a 3 way splitter. I have found a modeline that all 3 monitors are happy with and all works well.

However, every bootup causes linux to detect a different (of the 3) monitor, a changing the video resolution etc..

How do I force linux to just use the Xorg.conf as is (without detecting new monitors every time and messing things up).

OpenSUSE Install :: Precedence Of Xorg.conf Over Xorg.conf.d?

Jan 26, 2011

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:

in xorg.conf:

Code:

Section "Device"
Identifier "Device0"
Driver "nvidia"

[code]....

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?

Ubuntu :: Editing Xorg.conf - /etc/x11/xorg.conf Does Not Exist

Debian Multimedia :: XOrg Auto-detect Failing To Detect Max Screen Resolution

May 29, 2011

I've installed Squeeze 2.6.32-5-amd64 on my laptop (Alienware M17X R3, Intel i7 Sandybridge, ATI Technologies Inc Broadway [ATI Mobility Radeon HD 6800 Series])The screen is 17", with maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080. After a default install of the operating system, the maximum resolution I can select is 1280 x 1024.My research so far has suggested that I need to edit the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and provide xorg with the necessary resolution.

Again, by default, the xorg.conf file is not created. This leads me to believe that xorg is scanning my hardware at startup and providing me with whatever it thinks is appropriate. I tried following these instructions to generate an xorg.conf file. This process created an xorg.conf file under /root/.

When I copy this xorg.conf file to /etc/X11, I get a blank (i.e. black) screen. Deleting this file restores the default resolution 1280 x 1024.This system is dual booting with Windows 7. Under windows I am able to get a 1920 x 1080 resolution, so I know my hardware is up to it.At this stage I have yet to install the drivers for the Radeon graphics card.What are my options regarding configuring xorg to give me a higher screen resolution?
