stuck in 800x600 after fresh install of cassandra /SOLVED/

Postby civint on Mon Jun 04, 2007 5:46 am

I just installed cassandra, and installed the drivers for my graphics card from
sudo envy -t

and I am now stuck with a resolution of 800x600

the output from xrandr is
SZ: Pixels Physical Refresh
*0 800 x 600 ( 270mm x 203mm ) *50
Current rotation - normal
Current reflection - none
Rotations possible - normal
Reflections possible - none


and the output from my xorg.conf is

I have altered the settings for the sections monitor, and screen, since they were chamges that I made in my bianca install.

I have an nvidia GeForce 6200, with the correct drivers intalled from a manual envy install.

Any help in getting my resolution back to how it should be (1200x1024)?

Your xorg.conf does not look as it should.
Below I'll paste my xorg.conf wich is for a nvidia 6600 (GT) normal keybord and a mouse with scrollwheel.
You could probably use it right off - but make a copy of your present xorg.conf first.
I have changed the keyboard layout to "us" as you have

will the difference in graphics crads make a difference to the xorg setup, for example the resolution? (I wasn't sure, but they are both 6xxx series nvidia, so are the drivers the same?)

*edit*-it hasn't borked my xorg.conf, however, it appears, after a ctrl-alt-backspace restart of my gnome session, and then of my pc entirely, it is still stuck on 800x600, with an xrandr output of

SZ: Pixels Physical Refresh
*0 800 x 600 ( 270mm x 203mm ) *50

Driver is called "nvidia" in both cases and is probably the same but could be different despite the name
Will have to sleep on this one....

I reinstalled LM3.0 in case it was a problem during install, I then ran envy, and downloaded the latest nvidia driver from it, which is 9755 on the manual install menu.

My xorg.conf now looks like this
# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig

although the output from xrandr now shows this
SZ: Pixels Physical Refresh
*0 640 x 480 ( 216mm x 162mm ) *50
1 320 x 240 ( 108mm x 81mm ) 51
Current rotation - normal
Current reflection - none
Rotations possible - normal
Reflections possible - none


since I am now stuck with a 640x480 resolution (I miss 1280x1024!).

Not sure how much help this will be.

I also remembered something about an issue I had with LM2.2, which was similar to the position I am now in, where I was stuck with a 640x480 res screen after envy, and in order to get around it, I started to use the older kernel version (I had 2 versions on install..not sure if this was standard..one was newer, the other older) and it sort of fixed itself in the newer kernel version...dunno. The forum thread for this is http://www.linuxmint.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2474.

Should I paste in the *fixes* that are prescribed into my new xorg.conf?[/url]

*edit* I fixed it by changing my xorg.conf from what it was to the above, since that was, weirdly, the one outputted by the gui tool to edit xorg.conf, but not what it really was.....confuzzling.

1) Problem solved?
2) eh? You mean you saw one thing but it was something else?

1)The problem is now solved, yes (it's just a case of figuring out beryl/emerald issues now!) I can now have my monitor in all it's big 17" glory
at a nice high resolution.

2) Yes, the GUI application which lets you edit some parts of your xorg.conf outputted the xorg.conf which I posted in my last post (where I said I fixed it) but upon cross checking it with my actual xorg.conf file, it appeared that the GUI xorg.conf configurator was outputting what should have been there, as opposed to what was actually there.

Is it possible that it was saving it's own xorg.conf file to somewhere other than
usr/share/xresprobe
? IN which case thats the problem, which I culd have solved by changing the folder wher it saves it's xorg.conf file. Can't be sure though, would have to check that machine.

Aha - I've only noted the presence of a new tool. I would always (?) edit xorg.conf like this
sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
(I know - gksu....)

I was doing that originally, but I though what the hey.

I'm still confised as to the new location of xorg.conf. Is there any logic to it? Or just a funny foible of mint3.0/ubuntu7.04(it's the same in ubuntu)
