Well done on that! I tried to do the same, but encountered some problems:


$ sudo emgd-xorg-conf
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/bin/emgd-xorg-conf", line 309, in <module>
if checkDMI(device) != False:
File "/bin/emgd-xorg-conf", line 292, in checkDMI
dmi = os.popen("dmesg | grep DMI").read().split("\n")[1].split(":")[1][1:].split(",")[0] # Getting the dmi from dmesg
IndexError: list index out of range

Any ideas?

To run emgd-xorg-conf on my Mini 12, I had to change line 126 (the first line to mention dell_1210), and add one space to the part that says

Dell Inc. Inspiron 1210 /0X605H. There are 3 spaces between "1210" and "/0X605H" and I needed 4. My *full* DMI line in dmesg is

Dell Inc. Inspiron 1210 /0X605H, BIOS A02 12/01/2008 so I wonder if the spacing varies by BIOS update?

Try this in terminal.

sudo gedit /bin/emgd-xorg-conf

on line 309 where it says "if checkDMI(device) != False:"
change "False" to True.

Save the file run sudo emgd-xorg-conf in terminal and reboot.

cross yo' damn fingers.
