    My xorg.conf does not have any resolutions listed


    can some one help me i need this to have a max resolution of 1280x800
    Code:
    # 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.
    #
    # 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

    Which Graphics Card do you have?
    Code:
    sudo lspci | grep -i vga
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Yeah, xorg is self configuring now and only holds very basic information. It should really only be populated if you need to override the defaults. Glad its working for you

    And in some cases, it's even possible to run X without even having an xorg.conf.
