xorg.conf: default screen resolution smaller than max. resolution ??
I have a 19" monitor that can do 1600x1200, but that is too small pixels for my eyes - I prefer 1400x1050. But I'd like to be able to use 1600x1200 e.g. for gameplay (quake4 does not start in 1600x1200 when this mode is not defined in xorg.conf! :D )!
When the Modes entry in my xorg.conf contains
I figured the first entry is the default entry, so I tried
Is there a possibility to have 1600x1200 in xorg.conf, but to have 1400x1050 as default screen resolution?
Any help appreciated!
gtf 1600 1200 85
you'll get somthing like this
$ gtf 1600 1200 85
# 1600x1200 @ 85 Hz (GTF) hsync: 91.50 kHz; pclk: 143.47 MHz
Modeline "1152x864_100.00" 143.47 1152 1232 1360 1568 864 865 868 915 -HSync +Vsync(DU NOT USE THIS LINE - IT DOES NOT match YOUR MONITOR)
you need the line with Modeline in your xorg.conf
ModelName "firstname.lastname@example.org Hz"
# 1152x864 @ 100.00 Hz (GTF) hsync: 91.50 kHz; pclk: 143.47 MHz
Modeline "1152x864_100.00" 143.47 1152 1232 1360 1568 864 865 868 915 -HSync +Vsync
Monitor "iiyama" #
Viewport 0 0
Modes "1152x864_100.00" # edit this line the way you want it
Thoddy, let us know if you understood andygo's reply :)
Normally there is a script which sets the resolution at boottime. This default resolution can be changed in a gui.
There are various ways of getting different resolutions for different apps. Mostly, you just write a script to load the app, but setting resolution first.
If the maximum resolution is too fine for you with the default configuration, try customising your theme/desktop/panel settings to use larger point sizes. Then you'll still be able to see everything and the pixel size won't matter.
