    DVI Monitor


    I have a 20 in Apple DVI Monitor. I downloaded the new Ubuntu, and all went well except I can't change the rez from 1024 any higher? It should do 1600 no problem, however it is stuck at 1024 with 60 refreesh.

    Thanks

    Did you make sure the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf is in right order?

    You'll need to have the manufacturer's specification for the monitors at hand (if you can't find them call Apple), and put them in a section that looks like that :

    Quote Originally Posted by xorg.conf example

    Option "DPMS"
    HorizSync 31.5-90
    VertRefresh 59-75
    EndSection
    Of course your monitor's numbers will be different.


    For the resolution, a section like that :

    ...

    DefaultDepth 24
    SubSection "Display"
    Depth 24
    Modes "1680x1050" "1280x800" "1024x640"
    EndSubSection
    EndSection
    Those should be the right numbers, they come from :
