Help with Xorg with a RADEON X700

Hi everyone,

I deleted my Xorg.conf b/c I though there was a BIGGGGG error on it...

But well, It was stupid b/c I forgot to backup it...

Now I tried the "xorgsetup" script, but when I do "xinit", the screen is VERY VERY small, its not at 1024x768...

I tried the "xorgconfig" script, but when I did xinit, it was as small as when I do "xorgsetup"...

And I alsa looked at "xorgcfg", but its kinda complicated...


ATI Radeon X700 256MB AGP

Envision EN-S1785 monitor


Anyone, I did some searches, but Im not totally satisfied...

Maybe I didnt use correctly the "xorgconfig" setup (IM A NOOB!).

Well w/e, Ill be very happy of your help...

Thanx alot

You can just edit your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. Look for your screens section and change it to what you want.
Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "ATI Graphics Adapter"
Monitor "Monitor0"
DefaultDepth 24
#Option "backingstore"

Subsection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
ViewPort 0 0 # initial origin if mode is smaller than desktop
# Virtual 1280 1024
You hit cntl-alt-+ or - to change between the ones listed.
