i am having trouble getting GeForce Fx5500 video card to cooperate with my Planar WS231 at 1600x1200. Digital only goes to 1280x__, but analog has achieved 1600x1200. however, things have gone amiss.

i look in /etc/x11/xorg.conf and there are no entries. i look in ~/.config/monitors.xml and there are entries. i can reset monitors.xml by deleting the file, then reboot, then select resolution desired in Sys/Pref/Monitors, and i get the 1600 x 1200 again.

but why are there no entries in xorg.conf?
