No Resolution Options on Elyssa

Postby subslug on Tue Jun 10, 2008 12:14 pm

I just installed Elyssa in place of Daryna and have gotten the nVidia drivers working fine but I'm stuck in 50Hz freq. @ 1360x768 which isn't idea and I have no options to change anything. The screen resolution tool doesn't list any higher options.
There's not really anything in my xorg.conf file that I could edit to change the settings...
Code: Select all
Section "Device"
   Identifier   "Configured Video Device"
   Driver      "nvidia"
   Option      "NoLogo"   "True"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
   Identifier   "Configured Monitor"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
   Identifier   "Default Screen"
   Monitor      "Configured Monitor"
   Device      "Configured Video Device"
   Defaultdepth   24
EndSection


Compiz does seem to work and I guess as far as things go, this set up is usable but, it looks like a step back as far as fonts go.
Any ideas besides go back to Daryna?

Unless you use more than one monitor this does the trick
Code: Select all
Option      "DynamicTwinView"   "False"

Put it in Section "Device"
I suppose you can get other resolutions, but not a better vertical refresh

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
