    Re: Edit xorg.config file for 1680x1050 Monitor

    Screen 0: minimum 1024 x 768, current 1024 x 768, maximum 1024 x 768
    default connected 1024x768+0+0 0mm x 0mm

    that is bad.So adding new mode with xrandr will not work.

    Try your file with intel as driver instead of vesa/fbdev

    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    paste in

    Code:
    Section    "Device"
    Identifier "Configured Video Device"
    Option     "ModeDebug"    "True"
    Driver     "intel"
    EndSection
    
    Section    "Monitor"
    Identifier "Configured Monitor"
    HorizSync       30.0 - 81.0
    VertRefresh     56.0 - 75.0
    Option         "DPMS"
    Modeline "1680x1050_60.00"  146.25  1680 1784 1960 2240  1050 1053 1059 1089 -hsync +vsync
    EndSection  #made by cvt
    
    Section "Screen"
    Identifier "Default Screen"
    Monitor "Configured Monitor"
    Device "Configured Video Device"
    SubSection     "Display"
            Depth       24
            Modes        "1680x1050_60"
        EndSubSection
    EndSection
    reboot..
    ..if it should not boot,press shift when booting,recovery mode,failsafe X session.
    there run
    Code:
    sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf

    Re: Edit xorg.config file for 1680x1050 Monitor

    It worked!!!! Thank you so much!

    Just a quick question. Does it make a difference between 60 and 75 Refresh?

    No.
    Maybe.
    Old discussion.
    It is no CRT monitor,where increasing Vrefresh
    gives a better picture,
    On LCD panels this is done by the backlight,which is more then 200 Hz..
    Open a thread in the cafe,I am sure monitor nerds have an opinion...

    Set thread as solved and have fun!

    I was having some problems with Ubuntu so I switched to Fedora. Do you know how to get this to work with Fedora?

    Re: Edit xorg.config file for 1680x1050 Monitor

    red hat should use the same kind of file /etc/X11/xorg.conf. The new distributions do not need (and have) xorg.conf file by default anymore , but instead they use an app:
    Code:
    #system-config-display
    it's a gui-app. also if you want to create the xorg.conf file just use "Xorg -configure" and copy the new file as /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

    How do I access the #system-config-display app?

    Also if that doesn't work I kept on getting errors when I tried to use Xorg -configure. It was saying that my monitor was already running.

    Re: Edit xorg.config file for 1680x1050 Monitor

    I ran the following commands:

    Code:
    Xorg :1 -configure
    and

    Code:
    cp /root/xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    which created a template xorg.conf file (below).

    Code:
