Thread: Need help for custom resolution setting with nVidia graphic hardware.

  1. #1

    Default Need help for custom resolution setting with nVidia graphic hardware.

    Whenever I login or restart the computer, my resolution gets reset. I think it may have to do with my setup being connected to a 18.5" HDTV. Is there a way to set custom resolutions in the OS, so that Nvidia and OpenSUSE can recognize them?

    03:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: nVidia Corporation ION LE VGA [10de:087e] (rev b1)
    Subsystem: Acer Incorporated [ALI] Device [1025:0222]
    Kernel driver in use: nvidia

    For a VGA monitor connection, here is my suggestion:

    Open a terminal and type"

    Code:
    xrandr
    to show your display device name(s) and available display modes.

    When I execute this command on my computer here is what I get:

    Code:
    james@linux-6m6e:~> xrandr
    xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default

       320x175       116.0
    Create/edit a minimal xorg.conf with an editor like this for KDE:
    Code:
    kdesu kwrite /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    For Gnome:
    Code:
    gnomesu gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    Create/adjust the monitor section like this for example:

    Code:
    Section "Monitor"
       Identifier "default"
       Option "Preferred Mode" "1920x1200"
    EndSection
    Notice that I placed the name default and 1920x1200 in bold. However, your values will not or need not be in bold. The bold type is just used to show what I am using where in my example.
