Intel 3150 could not detect Monitor so cinnamon is in center

Postby derekdickerson on Thu Jan 03, 2013 4:19 pm

zbox installed twice with standard VGA connected
resolution starts at 800x600 with no other modes

Once xinitrc has been edited:
xrandr --newmode "1024×768″ 70.00 1024 1072 1176 1328 768 771 775 798 -hsync +vsync
xrandr --addmode VGA1 1024x768_60.00
xrandr --output VGA1 --mode 1024×768


Cinnamon panel stays int he middle of the screen

Followed the same steps:
Ubuntu Geek: http://www.ubuntugeek.com/how-change-di ... randr.html with the modifications in the notes, below.
Notes: Mint 14 uses MDM (Mint Display Manager), not gdm or kdm, so to make the changes persist the file to edit is /etc/mdm/Init/Default.

but the UI (Cinnamon) doesn't follow Refer to the (Screenshot)
This is a zbox with Intel 3000 graphics card and a samsung syncMaster 730B

placed the information in the xinitrc file and no change
No .xprofile but there is a .profile file when adding that file seems to not allow the UI to load.

I have restarted cinnamon no change

Found that Mint was missing "output" checkbox in the UI that xfce had.

then found out that SNA needed to be enabled by adding the following only in the xorg.conf file

Section "Device"
Identifier "intel"
Driver "intel"
Option "AccelMethod" "sna"
EndSection
