Notice in the log attached to post #29 it says
Code:
(II) Loading extension NV-CONTROL
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Option "ModeDebug" is not used
So this nvidia driver cannot understand ModeDebug in the Device section. (I don't know whether it will understand ModeDebug in the Monitor section).
I have email notification. I put in both devices and the other

will try again, just devices

The log file last posted has no evidence of ModeDebug, maybe because it wasn't from a run using ModeDebug, maybe because ModeDebug didn't work.
I think if ModeDebug is an invalid here, that should get logged.

Cheers, Lou

EDIT: Seems like we're playing response tag. Missed that warning.

Are you sure it was in the Monitor section for that one? The error message in the log file didn't change from when it was in the Device section?

Sorry, can't think of anything else to try. Will keep watching to see what you come up with.

Observing, Lou

I think this line in the xorg.conf may be causing the undesired switch to 1024x768
Code:
    Option         "metamodes" "nvidia-auto-select +0+0"
Try removing it.

See the explanation in

I'm following the conversation, having just connected a Samsung widescreen monitor. I've taken the advice of using the ModeDebug and am attaching my Xorg.0.log. What I can't figure out is why it's defaulting to 1280x1024:

Code:
(II) Jun 15 23:52:18 NVIDIA(0): 
(II) Jun 15 23:52:18 NVIDIA(0): Assigned Display Device: CRT-0
(II) Jun 15 23:52:18 NVIDIA(0): Validated modes:
(II) Jun 15 23:52:18 NVIDIA(0): Virtual screen size determined to be 1280 x 1024
Currently, I have this in my xorg.conf file:

Code:
Section "Screen"
    Identifier     "Screen 1"
    Device         "VESA Framebuffer"
    Monitor        "My Monitor"
    DefaultDepth    24
    SubSection     "Display"
        Depth       8
        Modes      "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
    EndSubSection
    SubSection     "Display"
        Depth       16
        Modes      "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
    EndSubSection
    SubSection     "Display"
        Depth       24
        Modes      "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
    EndSubSection
    SubSection     "Display"
        Depth       32
#        Modes      "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
        Modes      "nvidia-auto-select" 
    EndSubSection
EndSection
If I'm able to attach 2 files, I'll attach both the log and the full xorg.conf. I welcome any advice as I'm really new (!) to widescreens.

Thanks!

Anne.
