Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 177581
xorg doesn't show options for 1920x1200 screen anymore
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:20 EST
Description of problem:
The previous version of xorg would offer up resolutions like 1920x1200 when you
said you have a 1920x1200 monitor.
The current version does not.
To get my laptop running at 1920x1200 I have had to add the following line to my
# 1920x1200 @ 60.00 Hz (GTF) hsync: 74.52 kHz; pclk: 193.16 MHz
Modeline "1920x1200_60.00" 193.16 1920 2048 2256 2592 1200 1201 1204
1242 -HSync +Vsync
I have had similar reports from others that this is also the same case on
1440x900 displays where you have to insert a modeline to get this display
resolution to work.
While the default xorg.conf config file shows all the possible display resolutions:
Modes "1920x1200" "1920x1440" "1680x1050" "1600x1200" "1400x1050" "1280x960"
"1280x800" "1280x1024" "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
The only resolutions available are (as shown in the Gnome Screen Resolution dialog):
"1600x1200" "1400x1050" "1280x960" "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
It might be worth noting that no wide panel resolutions are offered, even though
they appear in the xorg.conf file. (I'll attach my modify xorg.conf file).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The system is synced with current rawhide.
While I can now see 1920x1200 in the Gnome Screen Resolution dialog I still
can't see any of the other resolutions in the widescreen format.
Created attachment 123079 [details]
Xorg conf file with modifications needed to get 1920x1200 working.
