View Full Version : [ubuntu] matrox g450 and resolution

September 26th, 2011, 12:47 PM
hi all,
I've a graphic card "matrox g450 dual head", my goal is to set monitor resolution with 1440x900 or 1280x960, as I've on Windows (with the same card).
At present, I can only get 1024x768, using mga Xorg driver.
Proprietary driver from matrox.com are incompatible with xorg version.
Any suggestion? Thankyou!

Hello and welcome to the forums.

I've seen a number of requests about getting Matrox cards to work, but not many solutions. Since you're already using the mga driver, perhaps you could have a look at using xrandr to achieve a better resolution. There is a good guide at this link: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/Resolution
