View Full Version : [ubuntu] NVIDIA GeForce 6600 AGP Resolutions Problems with Ubuntu

November 9th, 2008, 01:50 AM
I am searching all forums for weeks now and cannot find a solution to this so I am posting here for any of you that can help me to this. I have used Suse in the past and there wasn't such a problem. I have just installed Ubuntu 8.10 i386 on my Desktop (triple-boot 2xWindowsXP+Ubuntu) but the problem still exists in Ubuntu. My desktop tft screen ( LG Flatron 1715S ) works best at 1280x1024 but I cannot get this resolution in Ubuntu.

This is a screenshot of the "NVIDIA X Server Settings" in Ubuntu 8.10 (fresh install - fully updated)

My xorg.conf looks like 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.
# Note that some configuration settings that could be done previously
# in this file, now are automatically configured by the server and settings
# here are ignored.
# 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 "Monitor"
Identifier "Configured Monitor"

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Monitor "Configured Monitor"
Device "Configured Video Device"
DefaultDepth 24


Section "Module"
Load "glx"

Section "Device"
Identifier "Configured Video Device"
Driver "nvidia"
Option "NoLogo" "True"

It is very confusing and I cannot get to understand how to fix this.
I would appreciate just any kind of help. I would really love it if I see my Ubuntu Desktop computer work at 1280x1024 32bit.
