Re: Amd Proprietary (FGLRX) Above 60hz on Mint 17.3

I forgot to mention this, in case you didn't do it, but you have to use your xorg.conf file at the same time, which will list the vertical and horizontal frequency ranges to be used. Also, after logging out and back in, check in Preferences > Display for any new modes. The TV's EDID lists a maximum ...

Re: Amd Proprietary (FGLRX) Above 60hz on Mint 17.3

I assume you converted both EDIDs to readable text by using a program such as parse-edid or edid-decode . If the fglrx driver was forced not to read the TV's EDID, then it could be forced to use the Modeline in the xorg.conf file, but this warning line from the log file shows the line Option "I...

Re: Amd Proprietary (FGLRX) Above 60hz on Mint 17.3

I was exploring the possibility of the fglrx driver not being able to read the complete EDID of the Sharp TV, for various reasons. I wanted to compare that EDID with the EDID being read by the graphics driver in Windows.

Re: Amd Proprietary (FGLRX) Above 60hz on Mint 17.3

I have tested the monitor on windows and it supports 120hz no problem. When I hit the "display" button on the remote 120hz is there. If you have a Windows system and you have tested the monitor works at the 120 Hz refresh rate, then install the AMD EDID Utility to get the monitors's EDID....

Re: When I unplug the monitor the laptop screen won't turn on

You can use a workaround by using a xrandr command to turn on the laptop's display before unplugging the monitor. You will need to connect the monitor and then use this command in the Terminal and post the output: xrandr

Re: Intel HD Graphics 630 dual monitor

None of your suggestions did work. Instead, one of them seems to have somehow broken my NVIDIA Prime. I hope you thoroughly read the warning message that pops up when upgrading the kernel and made your decision accordingly. This can sometimes break something else in your system and at the top is gr...

Re: Can't add custom resolution with xrandr

This resolution is not supported normally, it's overclocked and i think that's the problem, is there a way to override it? You can with the Nvidia driver, but do so at your own risk. You may get a message about the resolution being unsupported. You need to provide some additional info. Use this com...

Re: 3 monitor display on Mint 18.2 from ASUS Nvidia gt730 2g ddr5

From your inxi output, it appears there is no Nvidia driver installed. How are you able to open the Nvidia control panel (NVIDIA X Server Settings)? Here's what I suggest. At the desktop, use this command to rename the xorg.conf file to xorg.conf.old : sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.o...

Re: Dell Inspiron 7559 Proprietary Graphics Driver Installation

That's strange. The xorg.conf.07272017 file, which was listed in the ls /etc/Xll output should still exist. When the Nvidia GPU is selected, the gpu-manager renames the xorg.conf.07282017 file, or one of the others, to xorg.conf . That file is configured correctly. I suggest disabling the gpu-manage...

Re: Serena - Nvidia Drivers drivers not updating correctly

After installing a Nvidia driver in Driver Manager, the file nvidia-graphics-drivers.conf should be created in etc/modprobe.d to disable the nouveau driver, but it does not exist. This is a common problem I've seen in Mint 18.x. Use this command to create the file: gksudo xed /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-...
