Using 11.04 on a Dell C400 laptop. It works fine but having a problem getting good connection with my Sharp XG-NV5XU projector. The image keeps flickering and jumping. I've tried every kind of adjustment I can think of and even scanned some on-line descriptions of fixes. But I'm still a relative newbie and no success yet. I'm just guessing there's a driver issue or something with different resolution settings?
OK, thanks. But you'll have to spell it out more simply for a newbie.
I gather that I open a terminal. But then what is the exact command(s) to reset horizontal and vertical refresh rates?
I looked at your modeline site but it honestly confused me about how to apply results even if I figure out how to fill in correct variables.
Thanks for any more details.
OK, I figured that out and created an xorg.conf file using these parameters which were best I could figure from confusing Projector manual:
HorizSync -90.0 - 90.0
But still no go.
Also found a read-only xorg.conf file which read as follows:
# Minimal xorg.conf for the Nouveau driver
