Is there a monitor at this (digital) port?

That was my old PC. I'm using a G41M-P28/P26 motherboard now.

Still no luck.

I plugged my second monitor to see if it was the hardware and it's the same as the other monitor.

I'll have to register this as a bug.

Thanks for your help with this.

PS: This link will take you to the same problem I had with Ubuntu over a year ago!

File attached.

Currently using the integral VGA port. Driver details in pic. previously posted

Have you tried KRandRTray ?
When invoked , it exists on Systray.

"Would be great if a larger list of resolutions, like in Windows, was available. Having to create/edit xorg.conf isn't the best way to attract new users to Linux away from Windows."

I remember having to manully edit "REGISTRY" for things that Windows itself couldn't handle, I figure I'm much better off.........

You may wish to read this : http://www.tuxradar.com/content/modify-xorgconf-better-performance

KRandRTray only lists the same resolutions seen in system settings / monitors

Windows just requires a right-click and choose display setting and you've got a ready-made slider bar that will throw up every resolution possible. This is the only feature in Windows they've got right when it comes to post-install setup!

And here is another /etc/X11/xorg.conf  (see attachment) to test Wink

No luck, I'm afraid. Drop-down menu still shows the original resolutions mentioned in my earlier posting.

I'm currently having issues with choosing a higher resolution than the ones I've been given at install of Pardus. Same issues with Ubuntu.

Would be great if a larger list of resolutions, like in Windows, was available. Having to create/edit xorg.conf isn't the best way to attract new users to Linux away from Windows.

Thanks.

Created the file and pasted:

Section "ServerFlags"
EndSection

Section "Device"
    Identifier  "VideoCard"
    Option  "Monitor-VGA" "Monitor[VGA]"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
    Identifier  "Screen"
    Device  "VideoCard"
EndSection

Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier  "Layout"
    Screen  "Screen"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
    Identifier  "Monitor[VGA]"
    Option  "PreferredMode" "1280x1024"
    Option  "Enable" "true"
EndSection


Restarted and nothing's changed. Still the same list of resolutions to choose from.

From my old Ubuntu notes, 'sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf is what brings up the editing program containing the file but 'gedit' isn't recognised here. I replaced it with 'kwrite' but that didn't work either.

What's the syntax in Konsole for bringing up the editing program so I can create that file?
41  Assistance / Hardware / Screen Blanks When PC Idle - Configured Not To [SOLVED] on: January 04, 2012, 23:35:03 PM
Screen saver is not active but after a few minutes, my screen goes blank unless I keep the mouse moving. Under Windows this didn't happen and I've checked the BIOS setting and there's no reference to screen savers.

Display and Monitor settings - screen saver is set not to become active.

Where else can I check to stop my display from blanking. Any thing I can run in the Konsole?
42  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Re: Increasing Screen Resolution on: January 04, 2012, 22:10:39 PM
I'm just referring to my old Ubuntu notes on how to edit/create that file.

I'll be sure to let you know how I get on.

The fun really starts when I try and revive my old Nvidia dual-VGA card that worked when Windows was installed, but that's for later......

Using 'Show Enhanced Settings' I sharpen my vids under 'video effects' but I don't seem to be able to make the changes permanent.

How can I do this?
44  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Re: Increasing Screen Resolution on: January 04, 2012, 15:10:11 PM
I'm using a CTX LCD monitor. Model S961A. This worked with all resolutions in Windows.
45  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Re: Increasing Screen Resolution on: January 04, 2012, 14:48:35 PM
I've included two snapshots of relevant information about my monitor.

The available resolutions drop-down shows:

Disabled
1024x768
800x600
848x480
640x480
