X Window video mode (Debian/Lenny/GNOME)


Hi!

I have installed Debian/Lenny distribution on my machine with Intel Corporation 82G33/G31 Express Integrated Graphics Controller.

As I understood, it intalled GNOME environment for me.

Looking at

System | Preferences | Screen reolution

i see, that 1280x768 is selected and maximum of 1280x800 is available.

Also I see, that the proportions of images are wrong.

How it is possible to setup another, higher resolutions, including undistorted ones?

How to know and/or change current color depth?

My xorg.conf is follows:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Generic Keyboard"
Driver "kbd"
Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
Option "XkbModel" "pc104"
Option "XkbLayout" "us"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Configured Mouse"
Driver "mouse"
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "Configured Video Device"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Configured Monitor"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Monitor "Configured Monitor"
EndSection

I have used the following commands

gtf 1280 1024 60
gtf 1280 1024 75

got the setup strings and added them into xorg.conf file, like this

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Configured Monitor"
Modeline "1280x1024_60.00" 108.88 1280 1360 1496 1712 1024 1025 1028 1060 -HSync +Vsync
Modeline "1280x1024_75.00" 138.54 1280 1368 1504 1728 1024 1025 1028 1069 -HSync +Vsync
EndSection

and now I can select normal resolutions in preferences.

But I still don't know how to determine my color depth. I found some texts about "xquery" command, but I don't have it installed and don't know in which package it resides...
