    Force resolution with xrandr

    Hi, I'm using an old computer (P3 600mhz) with a Nvidia TNT video card and a ViewSonic VG150 TFT screen. The computer ran Win2000 in 1024x768 but in Xubuntu 9.04 I can't get it to above 800x600.

    I can't find anything in the default xorg.conf to set the resolution so I guess it should be automatically detected.
    Code:
    Section "Device"
    	Identifier	"Configured Video Device"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Monitor"
    	Identifier	"Configured Monitor"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Screen"
    	Identifier	"Default Screen"
    	Monitor		"Configured Monitor"
    	Device		"Configured Video Device"
    EndSection
    I added some mode lines to xorg.conf but can't get it working.
    Code:
    Section "Device"
    	Identifier	"Configured Video Device"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Monitor"
    	Identifier	"Configured Monitor"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Screen"
    	Identifier	"Default Screen"
    	Monitor		"Configured Monitor"
    	Device		"Configured Video Device"
    	SubSection "Display"
    		Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
    	EndSubSection
    EndSection
    My Xorg log file running with default xorg.config. As you can see it can't find any mode lines at 1024x768 that works.

    Re: Force resolution to 1024x768 (on old hardware with new Xorg)

    Have you installed the graphics driver for your card?

    And another solution...maybe (use it at own risk, I do not know if it is safe)!

    Change the line
    Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
    to
    Modes "1024x768"

    Re: Force resolution to 1024x768 with xrandr

    @gjoellee: Thanks for replying! I'm using the nv driver (included in Xorg) for my card and it says it's supported in the log. I think the problem is that my monitor doesn't report 1024x768 correctly...

    I found documentation in Ubuntu Wiki for how to add undetected resolutions. Here is what I've tried so far.

    When I boot my computer and run xrandr I get the following:
    Code:
    $ xrandr
    Screen 0: minimum 320 x 240, current 800 x 600, maximum 800 x 600
    default connected 800x600+0+0 0mm x 0mm
       800x600        60.0*    56.0  
       640x480        60.0  
       400x300        60.0     56.0  
       320x240        60.0
    No 1024x768 here

    I try to find a mode that would give me 1024x768 with cvt:
    Code:
    $ cvt -v 1024 768 60
    # 1024x768 59.92 Hz (CVT 0.79M3) hsync: 47.82 kHz; pclk: 63.50 MHz
    Modeline "1024x768_60.00"   63.50  1024 1072 1176 1328  768 771 775 798 -hsync +vsync
    The modeline might look a bit strange but I'll try it anyways...

    Then I add the mode with xrandr:
    Code:
    $ xrandr --newmode "1024x768_60.00"   63.50  1024 1072 1176 1328  768 771 775 798 -hsync +vsync
    After I added the mode I run xrandr again to see the newly added mode. I can see one mode but it looks a bit strange.
    Code:
    $ xrandr
    Screen 0: minimum 320 x 240, current 800 x 600, maximum 800 x 600
    default connected 800x600+0+0 0mm x 0mm
       800x600        60.0*    56.0  
       640x480        60.0  
       400x300        60.0     56.0  
       320x240        60.0  
      1024x768_60.00 (0x13e)   63.5MHz
            h: width  1024 start 1072 end 1176 total 1328 skew    0 clock   47.8KHz
            v: height  768 start  771 end  775 total  798           clock   59.9Hz
    Then I try to change to my newly added resolution:
    Code:
    $ xrandr --output default --mode 1024x768_60.00 --rate 60
    xrandr: cannot find mode 1024x768_60.00
    $ xrandr --output default --mode 1024x768 --rate 60
    xrandr: cannot find mode 1024x768
    Any ideas?

    Re: Force resolution to 1024x768 (on old hardware with new Xorg)

    Just found out that I must add the mode I added with xrandr --newmode .. as a valid mode as well.

    That's done with:

    Code:
    $ xrandr --addmode default 1024x768_60.00
    If I try to change to the new mode now I get another error message:
    Code:
    $ xrandr --output default --mode 1024x768_60.00
    xrandr: Configure crtc 0 failed
    Not sure why but I guess that's something with my refresh rates. Will try more!

    [SOLVED] Re: Force resolution to 1024x768 (on old hardware with new Xorg)

    I finally got it working by adding HorizSync & VertRefresh to /etc/X11/xorlg.conf. (The values are for a ViewSonic VG150 TFT monitor so if anyone use another monitor find the values for that monitor instead.)

    I make all rows I have added from the original /etc/X11/xorlg.conf file bold.

    Code:
    Section "Device"
    	Identifier	"Configured Video Device"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Monitor"
    	Identifier	"Configured Monitor"
    	HorizSync       30.0 - 62.0
    	VertRefresh     50.0 - 70.0
    EndSection
    
    Section "Screen"
    	Identifier	"Default Screen"
    	Monitor		"Configured Monitor"
    	Device		"Configured Video Device"
    	DefaultDepth	24
    	SubSection "Display"
    		Depth	24
    		Modes 	"1024x768" "800x600"
    	EndSubSection
    EndSection

    I just have to ask...have you installed the driver for your card?
    Was the screen resolution at 1024x786 when you installed Xubuntu from USB or live CD?

    If it was you may consider trying xfix. It will reset your Xorg settings to the default, and make Xorg run like it did when you ran the live CD. You can read more about xfix here: http://kshoster.net/index.php?q=tutorials/ubuntu/xfix

    Re: Force resolution to 1024x768 (on old hardware with new Xorg)

    For posterity... I ran into almost exactly the same problem. I am running Ubuntu 9.04 using an nvidia 5500FX and a NEC MultiSync 3V CRT. Ubuntu GDM would not go higher than 800x600.

    I did find that Ubuntu is unable to detect the CRT and lists it as unknown. If I connected a 15" Sony LCD display, Ubuntu correctly detects the monitor and allows me to increase res. to 1024x768. If I hot swapped my video to the NEC 3V CRT, the display was out of synch. I swapped back to the sony LCD, opened the display preferences and manually decreased the refresh rate to 60 Hz. Then I swapped back to the 3V CRT and the display was fine. It was running at 1024x768 @ 60 Hz and everything was good. However, if I reboot the system, the resolution reverts to 800x600 max.

    Following the steps here, I did the following:

    1. Edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf file
    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Configured Video Device"
    EndSection

    Section "Monitor"
    Identifier "Configured Monitor"
    HorizSync 30.0 - 62.0
    VertRefresh 50.0 - 70.0
    EndSection

    Section "Screen"
    Identifier "Default Screen"
    Monitor "Configured Monitor"
    Device "Configured Video Device"
    DefaultDepth 24
    SubSection "Display"
    Depth 24
    Modes "1024x768" "800x600"
    EndSubSection
    EndSection
    NOTE: I changed my H. Sync and V. Refresh values for the NEC 3V
    HorizSync = 31.0 - 50.0
    VertRefresh = 55.0 - 90.0

    HINT: I ended up making a copy of xorg.conf in my home folder because I was having some other problems where I had to use the recovery console and repair the xconf which would overwrite my changes. So keeping the copy in my home folder allowed me to just re-copy to /etc/X11/xorg.conf whenever that happened.


    2. Found modeline for 1024x768
    Used "X/Config/Resolution" (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/Res...%20resolutions) to find this command:
    $cvt 1024 768


    3.
    $ xrandr --newmode "1024x768_60.00" 63.50 1024 1072 1176 1328 768 771 775 798 -hsync +vsync

    4.
    xrandr --addmode default 1024x768_60.00

    Now, after all this, I was getting the same "xrandr: Configure crtc 0 failed" error that ola was getting. He seemed to resolve the problem but based on the information he posted, I didn't see the solution.

    Here is what I did next:

    5. Stop the GDM
    $ sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop

    I issued this commend from within the GDM so it promptly booted me out to a message about reloading the logging deamon or something like that.

    6. Enter the terminal
    <ctrl>+<alt>+<F1>

    I found that in here "xrandr" would do nothing. I guess it only works from within the GDM or when the GDM is running.


    7. Start the GDM
    $ sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start

    When the GDM starts back up, it was in 1024x768. Additionally, xrandr and the Display preferences showed 15 or so resolutions, where before I only had a few. Additionally, I found that after rebooting, the resolution remained set.

    Just to make sure I had all the steps down, I formatted and re-installed Ubuntu from scratch and I was able to repeat all the steps as listed here.

    I hope this might help someone out there... or maybe just me if I run into it again.

    thanks for this, allowed me to get 1024x768 on an old TNT2 model 64 with 32meg of ram looks much nicer on a 19inch monitor then 800x600
    Debian Testing(64bit) + XFCE4 AM2 5200+ ATI Radeon HD4350, 4gig RAM,320Gig and 750gig HDs

    what's the difference between an answer and a solution? An answer is what they want to hear, a solution is what they don't want to hear
