Re: Unable to set correct resolution for GEFORCE 9400GT in Ubuntu 9.04
The screen manufacturer have now sent me a couple of different files, which they say are the right EDID info for the Nvidia Xorg config. The two files are:
W193 1440X900-A.dat and W193 1440X900-D.dat
I'm assuming that the A and D suffixes refer to analogue and digital, so I've used the digital file. I put this into my /home/dave/ directory, installed the Nvidia driver, then edited the Device section of the Xorg.conf file to add the line:
Option "CustomEDID" "DFP-0:/home/dave/W193 1440X900-D.dat"
When I rebooted, I got an error saying that the xorg.conf file could not be properly parsed, so I guess I'm either doing something wrong, or the .dat file is not the correct EDID info.
Any thoughts on which it might be?
