modeline, xvidtune, positioning screen
 
I have doe the xvidtiune, modeline thing and it does not appear to be taking effect. Have I got modeline in the wrong place or something?

In
Section "Screen"
Code:

SubSection "Display"
    Depth 24
    Modes "1280-1024"
    ViewPort 0 0
EndSubsection

I am assuming that you are having DefaultDepth 24; If you don't notice the difference from normal, the Modes "name" equal to your ModeLine "name"

However, I am just guessing, cause you do not provide enough information.

This is what I have

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen 1"
Device "NVidia"
Monitor "Mitsubishi"
DefaultDepth 24

Subsection "Display"
Depth 8
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
ViewPort 0 0
EndSubsection
Subsection "Display"
Depth 16
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
ViewPort 0 0
EndSubsection
Subsection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"

EndSubsection

The ModeLine you stated above is identified by "1280-1024". Note the DASH.
You are not using the ModeLine in your Screen Section. Note "1280x1024". So, you MUST use the same "identifier" for both part.

I have changed it to

ModeLine "1280x1024" 108.00 1280 1336 1448 1668 1024 1035 1028 1066 +hsync +vsync

but it does not make a difference.

I have got it OK now but it is in 1024x768. It does not seem to want to go into 1280x1024

Try ctrl + alt + [+] and ctrl + alt + [-] to change resolutions (+ and - from the numkey pad)

Try adding this to your monitor section:

Code:

        Option "DDCMode" "on"
That tells X to use the values it gets from your monitor.
Rather than doing it the old fashioned way with xvidtune and *gag* modelines.

Now I have it OK on 1280x1024.

The problem now is that if I cycle thought the resolutions with ctrl-alt-+ what happens is that the desktop enlarges so that one can only see part of it.

If I try Option "DDCMode" "on" where does it go?

Thanks
