low res. after "sudo envy"

Postby civint on Sat May 05, 2007 9:21 am

I recently installed my new nvdidia GeForce 2600 (256MB), and in an effort to get the linux frivers, I ran the command
sudo envy


However, now my monitors reslution is stuck on 640x480.

My xorg file looks as follows

Section "Device"
Identifier "NVIDIA GeForce 2600"
Driver "nvidia"
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
Option "UseFBDev" "true"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "L1718S"
Option "DPMS"
HorizSync 30-70
VertRefresh 50-160
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Device "NVIDIA GeForce 2600"
Monitor "L1718S"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Depth 1
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 4
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 8
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 15
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
EndSection



Something I also noted, was that when I installed the nvidia x-server settings program from synaptic, it thinks that I have a crt monitor, when I do in fact have an LG Flatron L1718S (17" flat panel) monitor.

*edit*
when I ran xrandr, this came up
SZ: Pixels Physical Refresh
*0 640 x 480 ( 216mm x 162mm ) *50
1 320 x 240 ( 108mm x 81mm ) 51

The xorg.conf "Monitor" section specs are incorrect for your L1718S display.

I'd change it to this...
Code: Select all
Section "Monitor"
Identifier "L1718S"
Option "DPMS"
HorizSync 30-83
VertRefresh 56-75
EndSection


In the "Screen" section, try adding this...
Code: Select all
Option  "metamodes" "1280x1024_60 +0+0; 1024x768_60 +0+0; 800x600_60 +0+0; 640x480_60 +0+0"
