screen resolution issues

Postby manorina on Fri Oct 02, 2009 8:54 am

Just loaded Mint 7 XFCE on my *old* machine. I've had trouble with screen resolution under XFCE whereby I keep having to change the display resolution every time I boot up.

Menu > Settings > Display always defaults back to 1152x864 when what I'd really like is 1280x1024.

SO I set it to 1280x1024 each time I log in. It works, I log out (with the "save session for future logins" checkbox checked - really don't know if this is relevant) and sure as anything, next time I log in I have the resolution back at 1152x864

Now, I ought to mention that I did have to edit
Code: Select all
/etc/X11/xorg.conf
and inserted the following to get 1280x1024 appear in the Display list:
Code: Select all
VendorName   "LG"
ModelName   "Flatron L1953H"
ModeLine   "1280x1024" 108.0 1280 1328 1440 1688 1024 1024 1028 1066

inside the Section "Monitor" part.

Anyone have any ideas how I can get XFCE to remember that I want a 1280x1024 resolution and NOT keep reverting to 1152x864??
