View Full Version : [ubuntu] La1703 - detect screen @ Ubuntu 8.04

July 20th, 2008, 09:46 PM
Hi! I've installed Ubuntu 8.04 at my La1703 and got a problem. The screen resolution is far too high, so the image seem to get on outside the screen... In my opinion, it looks like the system can't detect the screen. For example, when I run fglrxinfo I get "No protocol specified Error: unable to open display (null)", and when I try to change the resolution graphically, it says that there is no screen detected and can't find any. And my xorg only contains this:

# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
# 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:
# sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Generic Keyboard"
Driver "kbd"
Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "se"

Why why why... Anyone with the same problem? How should I fix this?

One more thing; The first time I installed Ubuntu, I got the right resolution automatically, but had some other problems so I thought I'd be better to redo the whole thing, and so this happened. Have tried reinstalling many times now and it isn't getting me anywhere...
