Noctilucent's non-solution #1: Why don't you tell the 'expert' to fix this problem for you?
Noctilucent's non-solution #2: If #1 doesn't work why not go back to SUSE?

Now then, could you post your xorg.conf?

Have tried, admittedly to my own low ability, to get out of the 1600x1200 res. only thing you see on screen is the header panel. I need to set 1024x768, yes know there is a section under preferences,but when I do this I get a screen full of nothing,unless you call flashing bits of screen an improvement.

Also, can I ask,how do you install a menu master on the desktop?

Should it help, I am using this on my old Fujitsu Siemens AMILO Pro, prior to using another os on my main system

Might I suggest you start a NEW Thread for your problem ? You have commented about your issue in two separate threads now, but that's not the best way to get assistance tailored to your specific issue. This thread for instance was started in 2007.. dragging dead forum thread back to the top of the pile just confuses things, people will start replying to the original poster, who may not even be around anymore, not even noticing your request for help.

Just a suggestion.

1. Start a new thread of your own.

2. Use a Descriptive title for the thread. something like "Ubuntu Screen resolution problem Fujitsu Siemens Laptop." Better yet if you know what video chip is in the laptop list that instead of hte laptop model..

3. Provide a Good description of the issue. You are half way there, but I still don't know what graphics card you have. the command lspci will list the basic components in your machine and will provide the necessary info.

Look forward to seeing your new post with the additional info.

Cheers !!


fedora, monitor, resolution, xorgconf
