screen over res?? [solved]


ok, nvidia drivers etc. etc. etc.

Xorg.conf has a max resolution of 1600, other option is 1024.
WHY does KDE default to 1920? I have my desktop set at 1600 as i want, but KDM defaults to the high resolution.

my monitor can handle this, so its no biggie, just a pain.

kde 3.5, gentoo 64, not a n00b but hope it might help someone else.

Check in your /var/log/Xorg.0.log to see what mode it is using for sure. If you do not have a 1920x line in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf it should not be using it.

(II) NVIDIA(0): Virtual screen size determined to be 2048 x 1536
It seems to me that it is trying to be cleaver and working out what can be done seen as something is set wrong in my config.

This is the only depth that has any modes listed, and is set as default:

Code:
	SubSection "Display"
		Viewport   0 0
		Depth     24
		Modes "1024 x 768" "1600 x 1200"
	EndSubSection
I know there is a lot of code there, but hope it doesn't piss u off too much

(II) NVIDIA(0): Virtual screen size determined to be 2048 x 1536
It seems to me that it is trying to be cleaver and working out what can be done seen as something is set wrong in my config.

This is the only depth that has any modes listed, and is set as default:

Code:
	SubSection "Display"
		Viewport   0 0
		Depth     24
		Modes "1024 x 768" "1600 x 1200"
	EndSubSection
I know there is a lot of code there, but hope it doesn't piss u off too much
Nah I usually get people to post the entire log so I can see what is going on. For some reason it is thinking you want 2048x1536 for the screen size you should edit the xorg.conf and move the "1600 x 1200" (remove the spaces eg"1600x1200") to the start of the line then either remove or comment out the Viewport line now restart the X server, use the Left CTRL + Left ALT + Backspace keys at the same time to kill of the server and have it respawn this best done at a login screen.

w00t. that would be a result

Its also sorted some fonts (like the box where u type messages in kopete) to be the correct size! B4 they had been the high res for some reason...
