I have found the drivers for Windows but not for Fedora. Where can I
access monitor drivers for Fedora?
As noted in this thread, there are no separate "drivers" to install
for this monitor.
I did update the hwdata MonitorsDB database file in August 2009 to
include these lines:
Dell; Dell E2210H(Analog); DELD030; 30.0-83.0; 50.0-76.0; 1
Dell; Dell E2210H(Digital); DELD031; 30.0-83.0; 50.0-76.0; 1
On FC2 I couldn't begin to tell you where the MonitorsDB file is
P.S.: I do periodically grab all the Windows *.inf files for all Dell
monitors, as published on support.dell.com, and update the MonitorsDB
file in the hwdata package with them. On any newish Linux version
though, this data is extracted from talking to the monitor directly,
rather than looked up in the MonitorsDB file. The Windows .inf format
for monitors is fairly limited in terms of describing the various
modes, and in particular, native resolution, of a given LCD; the Linux
MonitorsDB format even more so. Much better to use a newer version of
Xorg that can do the ECC directly.
