Re: Forcing a screen resolution



Hi Chris,

Hi all,

I have just installed Fedora Core 3 on my new AMD64 laptop, all has gone
well.

My laptop is a 17" widescreen model with ATI Radeon 9700 Graphics. The
max screen resolution is 1440x900.

Fedora has correctly identified and set up my graphics card, and I have
configured the monitor type to 1440x900 TFT.

However, when I go to set the screen resolution in System Settings->
Display, 1440x900 is NOT displayed as one of the available resolutions.
I am using GNOME as my desktop.

Is there a configuration file I can tweak to make this an available
resolution, or to make this the screen res.

Any help would be appreciated.


edit your /etc/X11/xorg.conf


Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Videocard0"
Monitor "Monitor0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 16
Modes "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection

EndSubSection
EndSection


in the Line "Modes" put your 1440x900 in the first position. The restart
your X-Server. Worked for me all the time.

PS: On the subject of Laptops, does anyone know of a GNOME applet to display the battery level?


Click with the right mouse button on your taskbar, select "Add to panel" and then select the "Battery charge monitor"
