Can't set display resolution beyond 1024x768 pixels
|Reported by:||Traumflug||Owned by:|
As discussed on the support mailing list (no archive?), Xorg doesn't let me set my monitor resolution beyond some imaginary barrier, which happens to be at 1024 pixels wide, 768 pixels high.
Display setup ("7" at the OS loader menu) offers me those higher resolutions, but doesn't manage to tell Xorg to actually use them. Here's my xrandr output, after manually adding the optimum resolution:
$ xrandr Screen 0: minimum 640 x 480, current 1024 x 768, maximum 1024 x 768 default connected 1024x768+0+0 0mm x 0mm 1024x768 76.0* 800x600 73.0 640x480 73.0 1152x864 LG (0x105) 108.0MHz h: width 1152 start 1216 end 1344 total 1600 skew 0 clock 67.5KHz v: height 864 start 865 end 868 total 900 clock 75.0Hz
This 1152 pixel resolution shows up in KDE's display settings panel as well, but KDE fails to actually set it either.
Attached /var/log/Xorg.0.log as found right after desktop startup.
