/usr/share/system-config-display/xconf.py does not change monitor settings
Last modified: 2008-04-17 11:23:37 EDT
Description of problem:
Monitor settings in xorg.conf are as follows:
ModelName "LCD Panel 1280x1024"
HorizSync 31.5 - 64.0
VertRefresh 56.0 - 65.0
I want to change them to a higher resolution (which the Video Card may not
support), in this case 1680x1050.
Select Hardware > Monitor > LCD_Panel_1680x1050; OK; OK
A dialog says "Display settings changed ... configuration was written to
/etc/X11/xorg.conf, original configuration saved as /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup"
The xorg.conf file has indeed been written (judging from its modify time) but
its contents have not changed. No xorg.conf.backup has been created.
This also happens if I want to change the LCD panel to a lower resolution.
so I run xconf.py either from the KDE system menu or from the command line.
that's actually long standing bug in rxpxl code.
