    Changing resolutions in xorg


    I know this monitor is capable of 1280x1024 resolution. However, even though I've specified that in my /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, when I go to K --> System --> Screen Resize and Rotate in KDE, 1024x768 is the largest resolution listed. Here's the display subsection of my xorg.conf file:
    Code:
        Subsection "Display"
            Depth       8
            Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
        EndSubsection
        Subsection "Display"
            Depth       16
            Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
        EndSubsection
        Subsection "Display"
            Depth       24
            Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
        EndSubsection
        Subsection "Display"
            Depth       32
            Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
        EndSubsection
    Am I missing something?

    Ctrl-alt-plus makes my screen all screwy with diagional lines and stuff -- like watching a TV on a channel you don't quite get. That happens the first 2 times I press it, and the third time it goes back to my regular resolution. Same with Ctl-alt-minus.
