Re: [kde-linux] Non-functional KDE 4.6 in openSUSE 11.4

What you gave me is very close to working. I think
1024x768@70Hz would work, if I knew the proper
modelines to uncommnet or to modify.

There are no "modelines" in the file. Modeline has a specific meaning discussed in this thread by Duncan last week. Most users need know nothing about them.

Your posts quote too much to make it worth hunting for your preferred resolution in previous posts. Had I remembered you wanted 1024x768 that's what would have been in that xorg.conf you fetched instead of 1280x1024.

You should probably change only four characters (add two and subtract two):

	 DisplaySize  270 203 # 096 DPI @ 1024x0768
	# DisplaySize  338 270 # 096 DPI @ 1280x1024
	# DisplaySize  270 203 # 096 DPI @ 1024x0768
	 DisplaySize  338 270 # 096 DPI @ 1280x1024

	# Option       "PreferredMode" "1024x768"
	 Option       "PreferredMode" "1280x1024"
	 Option       "PreferredMode" "1024x768"
	# Option       "PreferredMode" "1280x1024"

If you'd rather 96 DPI not be forced, just add the two "#" characters to the DisplaySize lines lacking them instead of removing the two others. Many people find display behavior suboptimal at anything less than 96 even if less is accurate.

You may also want to change
	VertRefresh  56-76
	VertRefresh  56-71
if 75 refresh isn't acceptable to you or your CRT.
