[HELP]Driver for Radeon X1300Pro.


My display is showing to like 800 x 600, not what it's used to be in windows. It should shows 1024 x 768.
Anything wrong with this driver or this is normal? Everything looks big...

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers,

ps: ah yes... i'm using xubuntu (feisty fawn)

Can you open up your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, and post it up. This will help to determine the settings required in the xorg.conf file to correct the resolution.

The problem could be your driver. I think the x1300 needs the ati official driver (will also work with vesa). If you are using the open source drivers, the card will not work properly as they are not compatible.

It could also be that the maximum resolution is set at 800x600. Changing this may resolve the problem. Some minor changes to the config file will be needed though.

The resolution section looks something like this (this is my one):

Quote:
SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
Xorg uses the highest resolution, so if the highest resolution is 800x600, this one will be used.

This is what shows i my xorg.conf file.
Code:
Section "Screen"
	Identifier	"Default Screen"
	Device		"Generic Video Card"
	Monitor		"Generic Monitor"
	Defaultdepth	24
	SubSection "Display"
		Depth	1
		Modes		"1024x768"	"800x600"	"640x480"
	EndSubSection
	SubSection "Display"
		Depth	4
		Modes		"1024x768"	"800x600"	"640x480"
	EndSubSection
	SubSection "Display"
		Depth	8
		Modes		"1024x768"	"800x600"	"640x480"
	EndSubSection
	SubSection "Display"
		Depth	15
		Modes		"1024x768"	"800x600"	"640x480"
	EndSubSection
	SubSection "Display"
		Depth	16
		Modes		"1024x768"	"800x600"	"640x480"
	EndSubSection
	SubSection "Display"
		Depth	24
		Modes		"1024x768"	"800x600"	"640x480"
	EndSubSection
EndSection

Yes, where it says generic it is okay - this is just a label as far as I know.

Try going into your display manager settings to change the resolution. I am not sure how this is done in xfce (assuming that is what you are using) though.
