Resolution problem

Recently I have acquired 2-port KVM switch. When the monitor is connected through this KVM in Windows 7 resolution is properly detected - 1280x1024. When I go under Linux (openSUSE 11.4 with KDE, nVidia 260.19.44) there is a problem with the resolution. In the screen settings does not appear a resolution higher than 1024x768. How do I set the desired resolution in Linux?

If you’re using the proprietary nvidia driver, then you can use the nvidia-settings utility to aquire the EDID info from your monitor as described in this thread.

Please, tell me more how to do it. Where I can get EDID in nvidia-settings, where I need to write it down, where I need to make changes? As I know there is no more xorg.conf file in openSUSE since 11.3.

Oh. I found these ways by myself. Thank you very much for your help!:wink:

Good result fiebolt. (Of course they were detailed in the thread I linked to) :slight_smile:
