Wrong Screen Alignment
 
Hi, I have a big screen alignment problem. It's no so huge, but it's enogh to hides the scrollbars.
I tryed xvidtune but at boot the problems comes back.
I tryed even with sax2, it was the same.
Then I disabled Apparmor, I looked for every file which include the wrong modeline and than I overwrote it with the right one. The file I changed are the ones with "xorg" in the name, and a "monitors" file I don't remember where it was.
But the screen is still disaligned, although the config files are still set well.
By the way, this is part of the Xorg.0.log:

I use Opensuse 10.3 and free drivers, I can't use the propretary ones bacause of black screen at boot.

I think you are looking at the wrong end. All of the monitors I've used over the last 10 years or so (various models/manufacturers) have either a one-button auto-tune capability or horizontal/vertical positioning adjustments. Just adjust your monitor.

sloteel 11-02-2007 01:21 PM

Yes, that's the dirty solution I tryed, and it runs well. I set the screen in linux, than I aligned it in windows using the catalyst control center. Now I have erased the fglrx from any linux installation and I'm waiting for a new pc with nvidia or intel.
By the way I think that a tool like xvidtune which sets the results will be very useful.

Why do you consider configuring your hardware correctly to be a "dirty solution"? What makes you think the Windows driver is setting anything correctly?

delta_9 11-02-2007 08:25 PM

im somehow experiencing the same problem.When i log to linux screen is ok the when i log to windows screen is moved slightly left.I have to press the monitor's auto adjust button.Then to linux again screen is moved slightly to the right press the monitor's button etc...

macemoneta 11-02-2007 08:41 PM

Does your monitor have a "Save" button? Many monitors will save several configurations, then return to the saved state when presented with the known set of horizontal and vertical frequencies. That way, you don't have to keep resetting them.

sloteel 11-03-2007 04:16 AM

macemoneta is right: even xp, without any catalyst driver, set the screen like linux does. The catalyst just have a great autoconf procedure that solve this little issue of the monitor or the graphic card without the user intention.
They also have a great alignment tool; so, why do we have to use the hardware alignment everytime when we could use the catalyst software one only one time in life?
Yes, fglrx does the same and maybe nvidia too but believe me: try the open driver, a bit slower and not-so-good in running aiglx, but the propretary causes many issues even not related to the screen.
If you have Nvidia or intel... sorry for the monologue :p

Problem solved here after installing the Nvidia drivers from Nvidia repos
