I'm trying to set up my monitor so it's at the native resolution 1680*1050. I believe I know what I need to add to my XF86Config, I just need to find out the specific values. If you could tell me that I know what I need to add and understand it.
The first section is Monitor. I think I've got this down. I found someone else's config with a similar monitor to mine and they used the line:
Could you explain what this means?
Next is Modes. Here is what I believe I need to add:
Modeline "1680x1050" 256.20 1680 1808 1992 2304 1050 1051 1054 1112
Don't worry, those aren't the specific numbers I'll use, I've got to find those out.
Finally the subsection Display under Screens:
The same config I mentioned earlier also had the line:
Could you explain this?
Thanks in advance, I think that's about all for now...
Edit: Forgot to ask if it's possible I could damage or break my monitor by using the wrong modelines. I'm on a laptop so it'd be even more devastating it it happened. Are there any kind of "safe values" I could use that would drive it to 1680*1050 if I couldn't find out the exact ones.
