custom resolution for LCD in xorg.conf
Posted on 2007-04-02
I have a Samsung LN-S2641D LCD TV 26". I'm trying to configure it with CentOS, but I'm having issues. First off the system-config-display application doesn't list this device, obviously because it's new, so I'm attempting to choose generic LCD, but it doesn't have one listed with the TVs native resolution: 1360x768.
So I decide to go into /etc/X11/xorg.conf directly. But I see there is one parameter called "DisplaySize", and I have determined it's calculated by using the dotpitch of the screen multiplied by the native resolution.
Well, I've checked the specs of this thing, and the web, but I am unable to determine the dotpitch (DPI?).
Are there any utilities that will probe the LCD to determine that stuff?
