    Re: Change screen resolution in 9.04

    Wow! I got it!

    First of all I used the first code regarded at the beginning of this topic. However, I got my monitor specifications and I knew its H Freq and V Freq.

    The final code is:
    Code:
    Section "Device"
        Identifier    "Configured Video Device"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Monitor"
        Identifier    "Configured Monitor"
        HorizSync       30-50
            VertRefresh     50-120
    
    EndSection
    
    Section "Screen"
        Identifier    "Default Screen"
        Monitor        "Configured Monitor"
        Device        "Configured Video Device"
        DefaultDepth    24
                 SubSection      "Display"
                    Viewport        0 0
                    Depth           24
                    Modes           "1024x768"
                 EndSubSection
    EndSection
    However, Although another resolutions values appeared in the resolutions under display, prefrence, system , but the default refresh rate for 1024x768 is 87 Hz which leads two screen blinkng, but I found another value for the refresh rate to 60 Hz and then everything is gone fine.

    Thank you Stream 303, I have had this problem for a year now, and after countless attempts to remedy the situation I gave up. Thanks to you however, my screen resolution is PERFECT.

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH! :)

    Know it is bad form to bump an old thread but have to say thank you!

    I modified my xorg.conf for an LG E2241 Flatron monitor on 10.10

    Code:
    Section "Monitor"
        Identifier    "LG E2241"
        HorizSync     30.0-83.0
        VertRefresh   56.0-75.0 
    EndSection
    
    Section "Screen"
            Identifier      "Default Screen"
            Monitor         "LG E2241"
            Device          "Configured Video Device"
            DefaultDepth    24
                 SubSection      "Display"
                    Viewport        0 0
                    Depth           24
                    Modes           "1920x1080"
                 EndSubSection
    EndSection

    Indeed!

    The thread is an old one referring to a now-obsolete version of Ubuntu and has wandered around a bit. If anyone needs help changing their screen resolution in a supported version of Ubuntu, please start a new thread, linking back to this one if you wish.

    Thread closed.
