    Default CRT resolution

    Hi, I was using an crt monitor that must work at 1280x1024 but everytime I log into kde resolution reset to the maximum resolution, How can I edit xorg.conf to solve this problem? TNX

    For openSUSE 11.3, this worked for me. I only added the "Option" line to the specific file listed. I believe this differs from previous versions.

    # cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-monitor.conf
    Section "Monitor"
    Identifier "Default Monitor"

    ## If your monitor doesn't support DDC you may override the
    ## defaults here

    ## Add your mode lines here, use e.g the cvt tool
    Option "Preferred Mode" "1680x1050"

    EndSection

    Use xrandr with a script executed at desktop startup. Have a read of these threads:

    If you have an xorg.conf file it overrides the setting in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-monitor.conf I believe
