Can anyone tell me where I can get good documentation on the "Screen
Resolution" applet? I looked at the Wiki on gnome.org, and I have
searched on Google, to no avail. I am trying to understand how the
applet interacts with xorg.conf and the X-Server. I have several Debian
images at work and at home, and some will recognize Modes higher than
1024x768, and others wont. For example, I have a Debian image on two of
my systems at home. I changed monitors on one of them, and after a
reboot or two, the applet began to recognize the 1680x1050 mode that I
put in xorg.conf (didn't need a modeline, either - the Vesa driver picks
this up as a supported resolution).
However, two of my other images won't support a 1280x1024 mode, even
though the monitor supports this mode. For example, the laptop I am
using is connected to a Samsung SynchMaster 940B. When it had Windows
on it, 1280x1024 was supported, so I know that the video card supports
this mode. However, the Debian installation wont support this mode for
some reason. Also, I can't seem to make changes to the refresh rate.
Any help would be apprectiated.
