View Full Version : [ubuntu] default dpi is too HIGH

December 13th, 2009, 08:15 PM
today I want to try ubuntu9.10 & Kubuntu 9.10
but there is something I never expect happened
the default dpi is too high for my LCD!!

My LCD can diplay 1280X1024 dpi screen and is still not enough!
I can't even install the system
so I use Alternate i386 to install it
and when I get to the GDM
the problem is happened again!

I'm wondering why the dpi has to be so high
higher than 1280X1024?Is that really necessary?

anyway....is that any way I can solve this problem?
I can't even log in to desktop,so we have to solve this in text mode

please help me...I've been google for all night...


it make me think of the blur's song
she's so high
she's so high
she's so high....

Do you mean Screen Resolution? because DPI is something that is unrelated to a point.

This is probably a problem with your X configuration.

This (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Troubleshooting/Resolution) guide should help you with setting up Xorg.conf.

I just found the problem
my HorizSync is out of rang
my LCD's HorizSync rang is 22-82
but ubuntu9.10 needs 92(?)

even when I try to install system
it still says it need HorizSync 92
is that really need so high?
