Re: How to get screen resolution of 1440x900?

I have a Dell Latitude D620 laptop running Fedora 10 with an Intel
945GM graphics controller. My display is configured as an "LCD Panel
1440x900". I would like to have that resolution, but
system-config-display offers 1024x768 only.

Using previous Fedora versions and 915resolution I had that mode in
the past. I also have this mode under Windows.

Any hints what I might research or reconfigure?



on my laptop with Intel 965 chipset I can set the proper 1280x800 resolution of the display. I didn't have system-config-display installed.. but gnome-display-properties was installed.. Perhaps you can try that.

In system-config-display did you try setting the monitor to Generic LCD 1440x900 or some other thing?

Also look at /var/log/Xorg.0.log You can see if it is using the proper 'intel' driver and what the available modes are

in my log file I can see that my hardware combination supports the following:

(II) intel(0): Modeline "1280x800"x59.9 71.00 1280 1328 1360 1440 800 803 809 823 -hsync -vsync (49.3 kHz) II) intel(0): Modeline "1024x768"x60.0 65.00 1024 1048 1184 1344 768 771 777 806 -hsync -vsync (48.4 kHz) (II) intel(0): Modeline "800x600"x60.3 40.00 800 840 968 1056 600 601 605 628 +hsync +vsync (37.9 kHz) (II) intel(0): Modeline "640x480"x59.9 25.18 640 656 752 800 480 490 492 525 -hsync -vsync (31.5 kHz)

those are some places to start looking.
