screenresolution script ?

Everytime i login my screen resolution is 640x480_60
Then i in a terminal change resolution to 1680x1050

cvt 1680 1050
xrandr --newmode "1680x1050_60.00"  146.25  1680 1784 1960 2240  1050 1053 1059 1089 -hsync +vsync
xrandr --addmode VGA-0 "1680x1050_60.00" 
xrandr -s "1680x1050_60.00" 

How can i make these settings default everytime i login?

Why don’t you change the screen resolution under Kde systemsettings > Display > Size & Orientation?

Sorry my wrong i am under gnome desktop :stuck_out_tongue:

Should be about the same under gnome. Some where in system settings.

only screen setting i find is xrandr gui and the system forget my setting there.
So i thinked lets try an guide for installing my graphiccard…
this 1…
Hardware - Installing ATI Drivers - openSUSE Forums

The first parts works but when it comes to the part buildpkg it does not work…

So now after sax2 -r -m 0=vesa i am back but now stucked with the 640x480 and i guess if i am planning to continue using this resolution i have to go to city dump and find an monitor from let us say 1998

This is the parts i do not get you guys are happy with this windows 95 mode or you are stucked in dosprompt mode 24/7???

Oh yes why are 640x480 default mode is it because its impossible to hit the ok buttom great job if

I got no resolutions problem. It is only you that is having the problem. But I run KDE and use NVIDIA. :open_mouth:

Sorry I don’t know Gnome.

The link you showed is over 2 years old. Maybe the details have changed.Maybe?

first check this
HCL/ATI Video Cards - openSUSE

Then try instructions here
ATI drivers - openSUSE

good luck

If you have a “legacy” ATI card, then take a look at post#1 and post#11 in this thread: openSUSE Graphic Card Practical Theory Guide for Users - openSUSE Forums

City dump seems an better option then the links i have tried them before.

If you want anyone installing the drivers from ATI or Nvidia an good option might be start with listen to the devolopers of the drivers and go the way they have set up the driver to be installed.

From ATI howto setup the ATI driver
For best performance and ease of use, ATI recommends the following:
Kernel module build environment
o Kernel source code include either the Kernel Source or Kernel Headers packages
The RPM utility should be installed and configured correctly on your system, if you
intend to install via RPM packages
The following packages must be installed in order for the ATI CatalystTM Linux driver to
install and work properly:
To install the driver

sh ./ 

To configure the driver

/usr/bin/aticonfig --initial

A big problem is when you go to the packethandler to look for the first thing you need to have installed it does not excist.
And yes i got the packman resp.

So i am not gonna waist more time here you have a great time in the terminal keep smoking!!!

Dont waiste your time listen to the devolopers

XFree86-Mesa-libGL? Thats nonsense. Utter nonsence. No, … let me say that different. Thats wrong for openSUSE. Clear ? Its not needed. … I dont want to confuse you, so let me say again. Its not needed.

XFree86-libs ? Thats nonsense. Utter nonsence. No, … let me say that different. Thats wrong for openSUSE. Clear ? Its not needed. … I dont want to confuse you, so let me say again. Its not needed.

Where are you getting this from ??? No one in this forum recommended that to you.

There is guidance here for the ATI driver: ATI drivers - openSUSE

If you choose to ignore guidance given in this forum, then this won’t work for you. Thats your call. Thats your decision.

Now if your hardware is legacy hardware, the proprietary ATI driver will not work for you.

How about telling us what hardware you are using?

Anyway, you have been given GOOD advice on this thread to get this working. You are following advice that is not applicable and is totally, completely and absolutely incorrect. I’m not surprised you get frustrated when you do not follow provided advice.

I have no idea what you are talking about.

I think you should read up on openSUSE concepts: Concepts - openSUSE

Typically with Linux, users do NOT install applications direct from the developers. No, instead users install applications that have been packaged by the packagers. The packagers take the developers packages and package them for users.

In a small number of cases, such as proprietary graphic drivers, users will obtain a driver from the manufacturer, and install a graphic driver. Every Linux distribution tends to have a different way of doing this, which is WHY you need to follow the forum instructions or the openSUSE wiki instructions.

… hmmm … I recommend you read that openSUSE concepts link 3 or 4 times, until you understand … Concepts - openSUSE

As a last resort solution, would it not be possible to save that what you type into the terminal to a bash-script and then have it automatically executed on/after login?

Why are you installing 8.24.8 ?? Thats obsolete. Following obsolete advice makes no sense. :\

Once was enough. You need to stop following obsolete information, and start following advice given here. You are making too many mistakes.

What graphic hardware do you have? What is the output of running with root permissions in a terminal/konsole:

sax2 -p

I seriously doubt 10.2 supports an ATI Radeon 4650. You are wasting your time with 10.2. It is also not supported so you statement above that you

also makes no sense. There is no packman repos for 10.2. I believe the last repos is 11.0 for packman. 10.2 was removed a long time ago.

ssatafcam, you are going about this all wrong.

I recommend you stop now. Download openSUSE-11.2 and go from there.

I am a KDE user, and in Systemsettings there is the Autostart tab. That’s where I would select applications and scripts to start automatically after login.

I have no idea if there is something like this in Gnome, but I do have a very strong suspicion that there is.

ATI Catalyst™ Display Driver
From here
ATI Catalystâ„¢ Proprietary Display Driver

I already got open suse 11.2

OK, thats good to read. Then if you are using the 10.2 ATI Catalyst, do NOT follow the instructions for 8.24.8. Thats like buying a Porsche and following the instructions for a model-T Ford.

Please, I gave you the links instructions you need above.

Do not follow 8.24.8 instructions on Catalyst 10.2 and then argue about it. rotfl! rotfl!

It definitely will not work if you insist on following 8.24.8 instructions !! rotfl!

You were given links. Just follow the advice in them.

…and the ATI Catalyst 10.2 does work in openSUSE-11.2 radeon HD 4xxx series.

Are you interested in solving your problem, or are you interested in violating our forum rules ?

Its your call and dependent on your actions our forum moderators will act accordingly.

I recommend again:

This thread is now locked due to rule violation.

I request that NNTP users do not reply to this thread.

You can just create a file and put it in ~/bin make it executable via
chmod 700 then it’s just a matter of opening the Control Center and
adding in via the startup applications.

/usr/bin/xrandr -s 0

where 0 is the output number from the screen resolution you require
from the output of the xrandr command.
