Linux Problems in Widescreen
Posted on 2004-08-07
First off, I have a Toshiba P25-S670 Notebook.
3.2GHz, 1024MB DDR, DVD-RW, Nvidia Geforce 4 5700 128MB, 17" 1440x900 Widescreen, the works...
My problem is this...
Under XP, I can get everything to display just fine, although under Linux, I am having a few problems.
Under linux, Xfree86 believes the display to be a 1024x768 display, and draws all windows accordingly, even though I have edited xorg.conf to function at 1440x900 (which it is doing... sort of...).
Is there some other location that I need to modify other than /etc/X11/xorg.conf in order to have everything function correctly?
Currently, the Video Card is recieving a 1440x900 signal, and is drawing accordingly, although X is scaling the display as though it were 1024x768.
This all seems to be due to the whole widescreen thing, and most displays being 4x3...
Any help will be greatly appreciated,
