View Full Version : [kubuntu] Kubuntu 9.04 - How to set up the X server?

August 15th, 2009, 10:12 PM
Hi there,

I recently installed Kubuntu, ver. 9.04, and everything has worked fine since except the display. My monitor had not been recognized in any way (it's a Samsung model from 2005, and definitely PnP). So I tried to find a configuration tool for this but couldn't find one that would work.

The KDE display settings window only shows two available resolutions, 640x480 and 800x600, and there seems to be no other method for setting the resolution. The /etc/X11/xorg.conf is virtually empty, there is no monitor information contained at all. Thus I'm stuck with 800x600 at 60 Hz what really hurts my eyes.

So who can help me? I need some tool to do some autoconfig...

Thanks and bye
