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:

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?

Debian :: Xorg Server Crashes At Random Times After Upgrade To Lenny

Sep 14, 2009

I've just recently upgraded to lenny using aptitude (following the instructions on All went smoothly, and almost everything is working fine.I have had my X server crash twice since then, both times when I simply doubleclicked a running application. There is some indication of problems in the Xorg.log file, but it's not helpful to me -- can you help me understand?

Debian :: Just Installed Lenny - Only Resolution 640x480

Jan 10, 2011

Just upgraded from Etch and now I'm stuck at 640x480 resolution. Xorg.conf doesn't show any display modes, and xrandr gives the only resolution as 640x480. The laptop is a Toshiba Tecra 730XCDT. I know its a doorstop, but 800x600 worked fine under Etch. Anyone know how to to change it back? It's really hard to look at right now.

Debian :: Nvidia On Lenny Only Allows 640x480 Resolution

Apr 23, 2009

I've finally managed to get the nvidia driver on my Lenny box. However I've now found that I can't change resolution from 640x480, the nvidia panel shows this and 320x240 as the only resolution. The layout shows "hidden as under 600 pixels" If I go to gnome screen resolutions it only shows 640x480. If I plug a second monitor in it won't detect it.
I'm using, older versions appear not to work with Lenny crashing x on boot. How to change resolution on the nvidia in Lenny?

Debian :: Lenny Xfce On Virtualbox - Can't Change Resolution

Mar 11, 2010

Well I have installed lenny from netinstall, with Xfce on a virtual machine, everything runs smooth and I really like how does it work, I just have a little big problem, the resolution is too high, it is higher than the host resolution, if I have to work in the down part of the screen I have to scroll down in host, it is kinda annoying, under screen config (right click>configuration>screen config) for resolution only the default option is available. I have googled and I have found that /etc/X11/xorg.conf must be modified to use another resolution, but I'm not sure of what to change or what to do exactly.

Software :: Xrandr Not Changing The Resolution (Debian Lenny)?

Jan 1, 2011

GNOME decided not to use the correct resolution ever. In Ubuntu, it got it automatically and that said it should be 1366x768, and when i run this:


xrandr -s 1366x768

I get


Size 1366x768 not found in available modes

So then I tried to run xrandr and find out what was available and I got:


$ xrandr
Screen 0: minimum 640 x 480, current 1024 x 768, maximum 1024 x 768
default connected


So when I try to change it to 1024x768, I get the same "not found in available modes" message.

Debian Configuration :: Xorg Affects Console Resolution?

Nov 2, 2010

I've been scouring the internet for an answer to this problem. I am using Squeeze and have properly configured Grub2 to set my console screen resolution to 1024x768x32 (as per updating /etc/default/grub to contain 'GRUB_GFXMODE=1024x768x32' and updating /etc/grub.d/00_header to contain 'set gfxpayload=keep') and everything works wonderfully. My resolution is set as it should be. However upon installing Xorg (aptitude install xorg ratpoison), my console resolution gets changed to what appears to be 1280x1024.

I thought that this was due to xrandr, however when I issue:

# xrandr -s 1024x768

only the X resolution is changed. When I then CTRL-ALT-F1 back to the console, the resolution is still at 1280x1024 (I am aware that xrandr only affects X, but I assumed that because my console resolution was correct before installing X there might have been some correlation).

I would like for my console resolution to stay at 1024x768 as per Grub2's configuration and for X's resolution to be at 1280x1024.

PS I also noticed that prior to installing Xorg, my CPU boots up without any screen blanking (only for a second or so). However, after installing Xorg, during the boot process the screen does blank briefly. It is at that time that the resolution gets changed to the 1280x1024 setting.

Debian Multimedia :: Xorg Not Showing (1024x768) Resolution Of Computer

May 3, 2015

I'm now working to install Debian 8 on another computer since yesterday. Another Linux, and as always, endless list of problems.

- A computer that was freezing at every installation attempt (but never at the same moment) during installation when the Broacom cardbus adapter was connected (it's a chance that it is easy to remove and I found it quickly... and it is working once installation is finished)

- Turning to sleep mode after 15 seconds if I don't quickly try to login

- BOINC receive no work

- Tray icons are here but invisible - no icons, just gray space

- xserver-xorg-video-savage is installed, but I have resolution problems, and weird glittering horizontal lines when the computer is working (as on my other PC with the SiS video card).

On Debian 7.8, it was working fine for having the 1024x768 native resolution of this laptop screen.

But, with debian 8, the max resolution is now "800x600" and with this screen, there is no smooth effect : the image is a disaster.

Here is "lspci -nn" :

Code: Select all00:00.0 Host bridge [0600]: VIA Technologies, Inc. P/KN266 Host Bridge [1106:3156]
00:01.0 PCI bridge [0604]: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8633 [Apollo Pro266 AGP] [1106:b091]
00:0a.0 CardBus bridge [0607]: O2 Micro, Inc. OZ601/6912/711E0 CardBus/SmartCardBus Controller [1217:6972]

00:10.0 USB controller [0c03]: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82xxxxx UHCI USB 1.1 Controller [1106:3038] (rev 80)

[Code] ....

How to confirm that my Video card is included into xserver-xorg-video-savage package ? How do I know if the driver is loaded ? How to modify xorg confifugration files in this modern flavour of Linux in order to force adding the 1024x768 resolution ? I already succeed into /etc/default/grub and "update-grub" for the bootloader screen but I want it too in the desktop environment.

Debian Hardware :: Sun Ultra 2 Xorg Configuration - Only Resolution Available Is 1152x900

Jul 6, 2011

I have setup a Sun Ultra 2 with Debian 6. It currently has dual 200MHz sparc I CPUs, 512MB RAM, and a Creator 3D 15MB video card. I have in the mail on its way to me dual 300MHz sparc II CPUs and enough RAM to max this thing out at 2GB. Anyway, I am currently having an issue configuring xorg.conf. The only resolution available to me is 1152x900 (which isnt even a supported resolution by my monitor), but Id like to use 1280x1024. I have tried for probably over a week now to no avail. I will paste my current xorg.conf file (the relevant parts), and please keep in mind that I have been messing with this file for a while so sorry if it looks bad.

Debian :: Can't Get High Resolution With Vesa Xorg Driver (Intel 82845)

Feb 20, 2011

With the upgrade to Squeeze and the 2.6.32-5-686 kernel, my Dell GX260's 82845 video chip suffers from the documented intel driver bug (freezes within a few minutes). I tried to fall back to the vesa driver, but am only able to get 640x480 resolution. The monitor is an LG L1720P.

I turned off kernel mode setting (via /etc/modprobe.d/i915-kms.conf), and modified xorg.conf -- added Modeline entries (from gtf) and
additional Mode lines to try to force resolution. Relevant portions of xorg.conf, dmesg and Xorg.0.log are shown below.

Ubuntu :: Resolution Does Not Give The Option For 1366x768

Sep 20, 2010

I am having a bit of an issue with xubuntu's resolution detection. I currently have a monitor plugged into my machine, the xubuntu machine picks up the native resolution of 1920x1080, but for some reason it does not give the option for 1366x768. i find this weird because any monitor that can do 1920x1080 should be able to do 1360x768 as well. The machine is running an intel card, so manual resolution changing via nvidia control panel isnt an option. Im wondering, what is the simplest way to enter a custom resolution into xorg.conf, or any other easy methods of adding the 1360x768 option into the machine?

Debian :: Lenny Fails After First Boot (Screen Goes Blank)

Jul 20, 2010

I'm trying to make dual boot system with Lenny (64bit) along with WinXP. I'm using one HDD with 2 partitions and installed first XP then Lenny. Everything seems fine till the first boot after fresh install. Lenny starts to boot and after same point the screen goes blank and then is turned off and that's it...nothing happens. Happens so fast that I'm unable to see the exact messages on the screen. Maybe somewhere around staring anarcon?

PC is:
Athlon64 X2 5400+
Asus M2V-MX motherboard
3GB DDR2 800
Radeon x800 GTO video

I reinstalled 2 times and it's the same. WinXP is working fine though but I really don't want it to be my OS...
Another "hint" from today: The same happens when I use "Try without installing" of Ubuntu 10.04(i386) Live CD. It starts loading and at some point turns off the monitor.
Tried also with 8.04(64bit): Boots till it reach something like "Settings sensor limits" and then it's stuck. I have consoles though (Ctrl+Alt+F1/2/3...).

Debian Multimedia :: How To Disable Xorg Screen Blanking

Feb 11, 2011

The X server in Debian seems to have a "funny" habit to suddenly start blanking the screen if I don't touch the mouse or the keyboard for a while, although I've used the xset command (xset -dpms s off) in my ~/.xinitrc to tell Xorg specifically NOT to blank the screen. I know how to disable screen blanking in /etc/X11/xorg.conf, but I'd rather not have the xorg.conf file at all.

So, I'd be interested to hear your suggestions about how to disable the Xorg screen blanking without using the xset command or the xorg.conf file. Is there some other file in /etc/X11/ that I could tweak to disable this highly annoying desire of Xorg to insist on blanking my screen after a bit of idle time?

Debian Multimedia :: Xorg Only Uses Small Part Of Screen?

Jun 9, 2011

After a install on a old Toshiba today everything looked fine. But when i tried to start Xorg it start but doesn't use my whole screen. It is not a resolution problem it just doesn't use the whole screen. Hopefully this explanation is understandable. On lenny i had the same issue but once i changed the console resolution size in grub everything was fine. Sadly this is not the case with squeeze. I already tried "X -configure" and had a look at the generated xorg.conf (posted below)


After that is tried to run the generated xorg.conf but then it just frooze.

Debian Installation :: Xorg Trouble In Sqeeze / Screen Goes Black

Dec 31, 2010

I'm trying to install Xorg manually in Squeeze on my IBM X30 Thinkpad with intel graphics (it works in Lenny). I used aptitude and installed "xorg" and "fluxbox", but when I restart my computer I get a blank screen, instead of the console login request that I was expecting. (Note: I did not install any login managers). So exactly what happens is that the screen goes black (just backlight on)during boot process. Once I'm at the black screen doing CTRL+ALT+Backspac, Ctrl+Alt+Del or Ctrl+Alt+F[1-7] will not result in anything.

I tried booting with the single user mode, but same result, so the only way I could acess my log-files was by using a systemrescue-CD. What I find odd about this is that I cant find any configuration files at all. No xorg.conf anywhere in /etc, /etc/X11, nor in /home. I don't even have a /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d folder.Am I expected to write these by myself? And if Xorg is the source of my troubles, why is it starting by itself, without any installed login managers? Xorg not working is one thing, but not even being able to access the console, or log in to my computer makes it rather difficult to search for errors.

Debian Hardware :: Blank Screen At Boot Up After Xorg Install?

I just recently got a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop and have installed Debian on it. When I installed it, I did not install the 'Graphical desktop' packages...only the 'Standard system utilities'Everything has been fine, however when I installed Xorg (aptitude install xorg) and restarted my computer, my screen goes blank at bootup. I can see the grub menu, as well as the beginning bootup process, up until udev begins to load. I have a feeling it has something to do with KMS now being loaded but am not sure.

Ubuntu :: Acer X183h 1366x768 Custom Resolution - System Became Unstable ?

Jun 25, 2010

Ive been searching for days and days trying to get this monitor to output in 1366x768 on Ubuntu 10.04. I knew it was possible, i did it late one night about a month back, but my system became unstable (not due to the resolution, i had setup a firewall to block all incoming till i unlock it, then another application to connect before i log in, and somehow it managed to lock out my keyboard on the login screen AND the recovery console, so i decided to just reinstall it)

Anyways, i found out exactly how to do it (for the Acer 183h that is). Ive spent about 48 hours total pouring through documents and found the documentation for nvidia-settings (easy find, i know, i was hoping to find an easy solution like what im typing up)

So, i figured out I could use Nouvaeu to get the proper settings (since all the modeline calcs dont do 1366, only 1360.) What i did was i went into the log file for the xorg,conf right after i installed, and in there somewhere near the middle it says what the timings are.


And i inputed that modeline into the monitor section, like so:


One of the two EDID commands is an old one, i just left it in there so when i was searching throught the xorg log i could find the section really quickly.

(BTW, im not sure if these timings are 100 accurate until i reboot my livecd and check, but im sure thier pretty damn close, and my monitor hasent exploded yet if your worried bout it, grab your livecd, open your xorg.conf, and it "should" be in the monitor section)

Next, i had to input all the Options to not search for different modes into the device section:


And finally, i had to set the screen to output the 1366x768, entering Modes "1366x768_60_0"


In the Modeline and Modes section, its VERY important that you have it in the format i have it in. The Modeline name MUST be completely custom, by adding either letters or extra _0.

And thats it!

Reboot, restart X, whatever (I prefer reboot, gives me time to ponder ) and you should be good to go.

(I know this may seem like a beginners knowledge type of thing, but im a beginner, pretty damn bright, and it still took me 4 days So, if this helps just one other person, ive done my part)

Im also pretty sure this method will work with other wide screen monitors, as long as you get the timings off Nouveou via LiveCD or installing the driver.
