How to correctly change resolutions under fedora core 2 with xorg.conf?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 8, 2004
Here's my problem.Whenever i try to switch to a higher resolution from within a an application (game eg doom 3 , rtcw etc) the only thing i get (after switching) is the upper left corner of the screen enlraged! I've tried ctrl + alt + - (or +) either from within the game or @ desktop but instead of getting a higher (or lower ) resolution i get again the upper left corner of my screen enlarged!
What is going on?
I use Fedora Core 2 with an nvidia geforce 6800 video card.
PS Here is my xorg.conf
# XFree86 4 configuration created by pyxf86config
Identifier "Default Layout"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
# RgbPath is the location of the RGB database. Note, this is the name of the
# file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db&qu
Fedora 7 xorg.conf

Could someone post their default fedora 7 xorg.conf file? As I recall, they are pretty basic. The thing is I have a macbook, and I plug an external LCD into it. In fedora 7 I get the 1600x1050 resolution on my LCD by default, no configuration required. The desktop on the macbooks LCD just looks too big for the screen, but not fuzzy or any other indication of a problem.
Thing is, in ubuntu and mint, the macbook always defaults to it's 1280x800 resolution, regardless of the external LCD being plugged in or not.
So obviously I'd like to get a nice resolution on my LCD when working at home, but I can't seem to make it happen.
So if someone could post their default xorg.conf, esp if they have a macbook, I would really appreciate that.

nvidia driver, twinview, xorg.conf issues on fedora 464
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 24, 2006
I've been trying to make my Fedora 4-64 box work with twinview.
If I modify the xorg.conf file to use
and restart the X server (ctrl-alt-backspace) or with init 3 and then init 5, then twinview works like a charm.
Prolem is that every time I reboot the machine the xorg.conf file gets changed to the wrong driver
and then twinview is gone and one of my monitors goes blank.
How can I prevent xorg.conf from getting changed?

Xorg.conf file error when trying to load fedora or reinstall fedora
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 17, 2008
So i was having a lot of problems with my boot grub see http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...fedora-669797/ but I finally got that to be fixed.
I am now having a problem that I think my xorg.conf file has been deleted or is not being found. When I choose fedora in the grub i get blue and green and lots of blocks and lines all over the screen which obviously isn't to cool. And so I tried to reinstall fedora and when I get to the graphical part of the installation the screen begins to put the nonsense on the screen as well. Do I have a bad install CD or what is happening that is causing this problem.
Thanks for all your help in advance,
[SOLVED] edit Xorg.conf in Kubuntu 11.10
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 3, 2011
Okay..so I've posted a similar question before but the situation is a little different now. I'm running Kubuntu 11.10 and I can't get KDE to save my default display resolution once I've changed it in K.
I'm running an older IBM Thinkpad T30 and my ATI Radeon Mobility 7500 is no longer supported by the proprietary ATI linux driver (so I left it to the default driver..did not try installing ATI one).
I've done a little reading up and I know by default Oneiric Ocelot (11.10) does not have an Xorg.conf file but I can't figure out how to generate one. Or where to copy it to.
Any suggestions? Thanks
P.S. I promise to backup my xorg next time

I would like to ask for Your help.
Since my first installation of Ubuntu i've had problems with running Ubuntu on newer graphic driver than those installed/shipped with Ubuntu.
For an example, with Ubuntu 12.04 everything works perfect with his own nvidia-drivers 295.xx but as soon as i install something new, new drivers like 304.37 from x-swat ppa, than i have problems with Ubuntu such as problems with xorg/drivers/screen realted issues.
I will try to explain it a little more. My problem is realted to logging off Ubuntu when, for an example, i use, i run smplayer but only when xorg.conf is generater either trough nvidia control panel and saving to x (by gui) or when generated trough terminal by running nvidia-settings.
When there is no xorg in ubuntu, everything works but sometimes i have problem with twinview, which i doesen't need, doesen't use because i have only on LCD screen. TwinView sometimes turn itself without choosing it to run.
If i generate xorg.con

[SOLVED] [ubuntu] prevent loading X during startup after error in Xorg.conf
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 22, 2010
I am using ubuntu 10.04 and made some changes in Xorg.conf to try enabling twinview.
Unfortunately, Ubuntu just stops at the startup logo now.
Is there a way I can stop the loading of X, so I can undo the error in Xorg.conf and hopefully make Ubuntu load normally again?
Grub automatically loads Ubuntu, there is no Grub menu that allows loading of some alternative config.
Thanks in advance,
