Problem enabling my IBM t55d DVI Digital Monitor
 
I've added the "DFP" option to my XF86Config but it still only works on a CRT monitor. Here's a snippet from my XF86

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor0"
VendorName "Monitor Vendor"
ModelName "IBM 9513 T55A TFT Monitor"
HorizSync 30.0 - 61.0
VertRefresh 56.0 - 75.0
Option "dpms"
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "DFP"
EndSection

I am new to linux so have I put this in the wrong place or are there other options I need to add? I'm thinking it's possible the refresh rate may be set to high but I don't know. Any help much appreciated, thanks

Hello,

do not use dfp in the config only when it is connected to the dvi of your gfx card and its a real digital TFT not an analog one with an convertor/adapter.

And refreshrates do not apply to Flatpanels also when the gfx driver gives this option. You should try the native resolution for your TFT from your handbook, maybe 1024x764 for yours? And use then:

VertRefresh 60.0 - 60.0

or

VertRefresh 60.0

Regards,
Marcus

The monitor I'm trying to use uses the DVI output of my GFX card. Adding the DFP option does not seem to making a difference.

Update for anyone who has the same problem: I just missed updating the driver "nv" to driver "nvidia" in the XF86 so all the commands I was trying weren't doing anything. After making the changes mentioned in the readme the option "ConnectedMonitor" "DFP" command enabled my monitor.
