Thus far I've spent my free time for this month trying to resolve this issue and tinker with vector. I do hope to return to it but it'll be another day, probably next month sometime.
- VL 6.0 Std Gold (MD5 Sum Checked out)
Desktop windows manager:
- XFCE 4
I'm having trouble setting up the correct resolution of my monitor (Syncmaster 275t) at its desired 1920x1200 resolution.
- Going through VASM's VXCONF, AUTO and VESA.
- Editing VXCONF's outputed xorg file.
- Going through xorgconfig and xorgsetup
- Editing those files.
I have the correct horizontal and vertical sync.
The closest I got was 1920 x 1200 was 1920 x 1080, and when I set it to a lower screen size with the same aspect ratio (1440x900) I get the resolution of 1024 x ?.
I edited the 1920x1080 xorg.conf to 1920x1200 and received coloured vertical (|| = up and down) static stripes for about every 5 cm's of screen.. But I believe it was actually 1920x1200.. Is there a way to actually check this? I just estimate based on the way www.vectorlinux.com
looks in a browser and whether the screen is contorted.
The maximum setting that comes up in the display preferences has always been 1280x1024 despite the xorg.conf.. are these in any way related?
I must be missing something obvious here. I have looked through the docs, faqs and searched the forums but couldn't find anything that solved my issue unfortunately.
Been struggling with this for about a day.
... I know the computer can handle it as it's done it before on Ubuntu, but I'd really prefer to have Vector on here.
