FC6 Monitor Question
 
I am running FC6 and the monitor is not being recognized. It shows it as a generic 19" LCD Monitor but I have a Acer AL1917W. It is not listed and I cannot find it on the website. Any clue on what I should do?

Re: FC6 Monitor Question
 
You can manually set available resolutions and refresh rates in
/etc/X11/xorg.conf

You coudl set it up using this example:
Code:

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "MonExt"
VendorName "Dell"
ModelName "Dell 2001FP (Digital)"
Option "DPMS"
HorizSync 31.0-80.0
VertRefresh 56.0-76.0
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Videocard0"
Monitor "MonExt"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24
Modes "1600x1200" "1600x1024" "1440x900" "1400x1050" "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1280x800" "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection

Dont copy this verbatim, just tailor as needed.
