    Re: Screen resolution problem!!

    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?

    Re: Screen resolution problem!!

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