    Thinkpad T30 display driver

    Hello all, I have a thinkpad t30 with a ATI video card. Is there a way i can tell if its using the correct driver? Also is there a way of telling what resolution my display is set to in xubuntu? What is the max resolution of the t30's display?

    Thanks

    EDIT: Maybe this will help

    Hi and what version of Xubuntu are you using? If you want to check the resolution you can view applications, settings, settings manager, display. To view your xorg use the command in the terminal
    Code:
    cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    and look for the device section. Terminal is located under applications, accessories.

    Re: Thinkpad T30 display driver

    Thanks for the reply. Im running 8.04 and here the output of the command you posted. The display manager olny has two settings listed 800x600 and 640x480, but I think its running at some type of 1042 resolution, because when i click on 800x600 it changes to that display mode.Also the video card is ATI mobility radeon M7

    Hi I do not have a ati card running on any of my systems at the moment. The XFCE I am using is on top of a existing ubuntu system so I have screens and graphics under applications. But you may use synaptic manager to search and install displayconfig-gtk to aid in your issues. It will assist in configuring your resolution and graphics driver.

    Re: Thinkpad T30 display driver

    How do I edit the displayconfig-gtk file to see what my resolution my screen is, or to change it because the package is already installed.

    Hi and you can use the alt, F2 keys and enter the command
    Code:
    gksu displayconfig-gtk
    this will open screens and graphics for you to adjust the resolution and driver with a GUI

    T30 here running Ubuntu Hardy and Gnome. Max resolution for me is 1024x768. Can't enable desktop effects (don't care). The video card is a Radeon Mobility M7 LW [Radeon Mobility 7500]
    Don't know how much it will help but heres my xorg.conf.

    # 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.

    # If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
    # again, run the following command:
