    xorg.conf questions

    I am using Kubuntu 9.10, and this is my Xorg.conf file:

    Code:
    # xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
    #
    # This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
    # values from the debconf database.
    #
    # Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
    # (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
    #
    # This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
    # if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
    # package.
    #
    # Note that some configuration settings that could be done previously
    # in this file, now are automatically configured by the server and settings
    # here are ignored.
    #
    # If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
    # again, run the following command:
    #   sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
    
    Section "Monitor"
    	Identifier	"Configured Monitor"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Screen"
    	Identifier	"Default Screen"
    	Monitor		"Configured Monitor"
    	Device		"Configured Video Device"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Device"
    	Identifier	"Configured Video Device"
    	Option "MonitorLayout" "TV,LFP"
    	Option "Clone" "true"
    EndSection
    
    Section "ServerFlags"
    	Option	"DontZap"	"False"
    EndSection
    My specs are in my signature. I have installed the xserver-xorg-video-radeon package, and would like to know how to use it. I have tried to do so before, and totally fscked up my X configuration. Also, I need to know how to set 16bpp color depth. Thanks in advance!

    Install the driver that recommends you in the Software Private Driver. I don't have kubuntu, but i think should have tools to configure the video card.

    I tried that, but it didn't show up in the program. Any idea how to change color depth at least?

    See my configuration of xorg.conf file:

    See in the forums or in google. I really don't know much of KDE.

    ATi Catalyst version 9.3 supports your graphics chipset. Look here.

    It's important that the driver is 32 or 64 bit depending on your hardware configuration.

    If it doesn't work you have the open source video driver provided by the distribution and in this case I suspect that you need to install more than just one ATi package to make it work correctly. Search for ATi in the Synaptic Package Manager.

    Are you sure? I have an Intel box, not AMD. Also, it seems to be incompatible with my version of X.org.

    According to your signature you got: ATI Radeon Xpress 200M and it's supported according to their homepage. If I'm sure if it works or not.. I don't know, but ATi claims that it does.
