Default Re: 1920x1200 mode with Quadro4...

In short the problem is like this. There are lots of common resolutions like 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768 and so on. The resolution you want to use is not a standard resolution. On windows this resolution is added by a "modeline" which I think is a .inf file (or it is autodetected).

To get this resolution on Linux you need to create a modeline called "1920x1200" and put it in the monitor section of the monitor and then you can just use it. Calculate a modeline using http://www.sh.nu/nvidia/gtf.php (based on http://gtf.sf.net). The modeline it outputs is this one:
# 1920x1200 @ 60.00 Hz (GTF) hsync: 74.52 kHz; pclk: 193.16 MHz
Modeline "1920x1200_60.00" 193.16 1920 2048 2256 2592 1200 1201 1204 1242 -HSync +Vsync

In this case because the mode is called 1920x1200_60.00 you need to use this name instead of plain 1920x1200. You can rename it ofcourse.
