Display settings

Postby ldsilva on Sat Dec 08, 2012 12:13 pm

Due to my asus VW193D Display, when my linux mint 14 starts, it stays displaced to the wright of the screen.Afte login this is correctec by settin the display to 1440x900 @75hz. How can I change the display settings to such resolution, from the start (drub options). Before I did it with startupManager that no longer works.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I have the exact same problem. I've been searching for an answer since October: viewtopic.php?f=59&t=114284&p=658537&hilit=login+screen+display+settings#p658537

Have you been able to resolve this yet?

You will need to configure your xorg.conf to make the display changes permanent. There is a good guide on the ubuntu site.

FWIW, I haven't had much luck with ASUS computers. But I love my Lenovo Thinkpad.
My desktop runs 64-bit Linux Mint Cinnamon, my htpc runs 64-bit Linux Mint Xfce, my secondary htpc runs 64-bit Linux Mint Cinnamon, my answering machine runs 64-bit windows 7,and my laptop runs 64-bit Xubuntu.
