    Ubuntu Wrong Refresh Rate...

    hi, just installed ATi drivers etc...
    booted up with 1600x1200(Y) but with 75hz which my dell doesn't support. the only options are 60/75hz
    i need 70... otherwise annoying blackness around the screen.
    any ideas?
    My monitor is a DELL D1226H... and I'm using a 9600xt 128mb...
    cheers for any help or suggestions as I cannot find a line in xorg.conf to change:\

    i did try searching.. this doesn't help because it specifys modeline... which apparently doesn't work and makes peoples installs stack.
    otherwise if you know what your doing generate me a 1600x1200 @70 hz modeline for the above monitor (1st post)
    cheers

    EDIT: and where abouts do I paste the modeline in the monitor section at the end of whats already there or?

    The informaiton in that thread shows

    a.) an example that you can use to set your own values specific to your setup
    b.) examples of where to look up to get more information

    As ikonia said, you can manually specify values in xorg.conf.

    I tried putting it before the end section (or whatever its called) in the monitor section and it wouldn't boot x so removed it with nano. where abouts should i put the code?
    example pasted into xorg.conf would help alot.as i've now got the code just need to know where i put it.
    cheers people

    you're too lazy to help.

    If you can't even report details back properly what chance have we got of helping you

    "the end section or what ever its called"

    repot the EXACT section name, and perhaps the line you put in.

    The URL I sent you has example in there and also links to get more info.

    Also - ever thought about asking on the ubuntu forums......you know where there are guides, examples, and people who can help in detail.

    yeah i have asked on both... as regards to the bit i deleted.it was the output from the site to generate the code for the custom resolution.i couldnt get the output it was too quick i just deleted the line i'd added regarding my monitors resolution and hz rate. so 1600x1200 @ 70hz dell dh1226h?
    i looked on the site it merely describes adding it to the monitor section but doesn't say where.for example under... line or at the end etc.it's really comfusing.if you could paste me what i need to put for the above mentioned monitor and tell me where with an example piece of code from xorg.conf i'll gladly try it.I'm NOT being lazy i'm just very NEW to this and trying to sort it.so give me a break.i try and google.ubuntu forums no one even replied...
    the section name as i say was the monitor part where it displays the resolution etc.also when i exit counterstrike through cedega it messes up and changes my desktop resolution back to the 75hz that doesn't display properly. as i'm having to use 60hz for the time being...
    cheers

    From what I remember of xorg.conf it gave you a list of adapters, their resolutions followed by the refresh rate (perhaps both vertical and horiztonal?). The file is pretty much self-explanatory if you take the time to read through it. Otherwise I don't have one handy.

    once again too lazy far to lazy.

    The link I sent you at the top of this thread talks about putting in hsync and vsync lines into your config file to better descirbe the monitors capabiliies the the modeline has a better chance of working, nice ot see you've read that and put that in your own config file.....oh no wait - you've not you've not done any of the info from the link I sent you.

    Use windows - please use windows, please please use windows.

    I can now see why your added to certain peoples ignore lists.

    Give you a break ?? try giving yourself a break by reading and appying the advice/links people give you. I'm giving you this attitude because if you search under your name on hexus its filled with little issues like this and each time you're given EXCELLENT help and each time you don't follow it and it end up with someone / me making an attitude towards you like this.

    Just to calm things down a bit, and to say you really should read.

    Be sure that Identifier is same as the Monitor line in Screen section.
    Thats all you need do iirc. The default resolution will sort it out.

    Admittedly youre hampered by not having a particularly well commented file.

    Get a window manager open and install sax or something though, and save everyone the trouble

    herulach - thats the point, I've told him two times in the thread the info is in the link I sent, yet he will not read it.

    Hence why I refuse to help this person, if you ask for help get given info, get pointed at info and just continue to post the same "I can't see it" comments, well you deserve all you get, whats the point of asking for help to ignore the info given.

    all i'm asking is WHERE to put it in the above xorg.conf
    well - in the link I posted and you read does the wording "Section Monitor" not give you a clue ???? I love the fact that you've got the balls to tell me you've read the link.

    I'd have more respect if he posted

    I'm too lazy to be bothered to learn or read, so don't give me any help - just fix this config file (accurate paste of config file) to work in this config.

    its quite a simple question, which only requires a simple answer. Unfortunately i cant help, therefore im not going to post any long winded explanations about how lazy the OP is, so why dont you do the same
