    Blurry Images/Text under Fedora C2


    **Edit** I had an image posted but apparently the screenshot didn't show the effect when I checked it under my windows computer. So that means something I guess? **Edit**

    That image should explain the problem. It's as though for each image/text item there is another one underneath it and moved to the right a few pixels. It's like a drop shadow effect.

    From my searches thus far I've tried changing resolutions, refresh rates, the font preference thing, and a couple other ideas but none have fixed the bizarre ghost effect. Below is my /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and it looks pretty normal with no obvious options like "make-lcd-not-suck". I just bought this LCD and it looks fantastic under windows so I hope it can look similar if not the same under linux.

    I hope to get this fixed as I plan on making linux my dominant operating system but it's hard to do that if looking at my monitor makes me feel like I'm drunk.

    Apparently this is linked to using a vga extension cable. I'm going to try and get a 10' cable instead of using a 6' and a 6' extension. I guess too much signal is lost in the transition from one cable to the other.
