XWindows Screen Resolution


I am still very much a Linux Newbie, so I have tried searching through help files and such before complaining, but I still cannot find a solution to my problem. I knew I would have to do certain things myself, but the fact that I can't seem to get this simple issue resolved, is rather annoying, and even an unnecessary step in Linux. I cannot get the screen in Xwindows correclty centered. I have played with vxidtune and xorgconfig , but I cannot get the screen to center correctly, nor can I get the refresh rate that I want. In windows I work in 1024x768 at 100Hz refresh. My monitor is a Gateway VX700 , and I have an ATI Radeon 7500. The specs on my monitor are....

Scanning Frequency: Horizontal: 30.0 to 86 kHz , Vertical: 50 to 130
esolution: 1,600 dots maximum horizontal, 1,200 lines maximum vertical

P.S. Changing the settings on my monitor is NOT an option, because I refuse to have to change the settings each time I boot into Linux or Windows. I would just like to keep my settings AS IS , and get Linux to correctly display itself in XWindows, I mean, I would have thought that I wouldn't have to change my monitor settings each time , since I assumed that Linux can just as easily perform well in hardware , as windows, now Im not so sure.

As root type xf86config
Have all the data for your monitor, card etc. ready. Use the vert/horiz refresh rates you have (choices 11 &5) and you should be ok.

you will need to find all the modelines for your monitor, these are sometimes in the manual but you may have to search the forums for "modeline" or such.

here is a good example:

Code:
Section "Monitor"
	Identifier	"Monitor0"
	Option	"DPMS"	"true"
#	HorizSync    28.0 - 78.0 # Warning: This may fry very old Monitors
	HorizSync    28.0 - 96.0 # Warning: This may fry old Monitors
	VertRefresh  50.0 - 75.0 # Very conservative. May flicker.
#	VertRefresh  50.0 - 62.0 # Extreme conservative. Will flicker. TFT default.
	#  Default modes distilled from

What file is that from? As for the manual, I don't have the manual, and i've checked on gateway's site, and their manual is not helpful , in fact all i got from there is the specifications. And as for this modline business, I am even more confused now

Sorry, that is a part of /etc/X11/xorg.conf in slack 10 (or XF86Config for 9.1). Open this file and have a look at the "screen" section and compare it with the one I posted.

Note how something marked with a "#" is ignored by xorg. This config file controls all things to do with the "X server".

This is all I have in my xorg.conf file, nothing close to that........So what exactly am I supposed to do?

Ok, I did that, and I looked under the control center, to see if anything is different under the monitor settings, and nothing changed, so what now?

Hi

That is the first time I see a /etc/X11/xorg.conf like this, are you realy sure that all
these ' ModeLine ' lines are needed ?

Say if you want 1024x768 at 100Hz, what is the output for :
Code:
gtf 1024 768 100

I have no idea, Im just following advice given to me, and my issue is not just running at 1024x768 , my problem is also getting xwindows to display itself correctly, without having to readjust the monitor
