How do I go about changing my refresh rate, from 60 to 75,
permanently? I read some suggesting changing a startup script and
using xrandr to switch while others suggested using xorg.conf, which
is not present and I do not wish to use for purist sake. Are there
more ways to change rates?
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1280 x 1024
VGA-0 connected 1280x1024+0+0
1280x1024 60.0*+ 75.0
@OP again, out of interest why do you want to change the rate?
I found that higher rate is better for me visually. From my xrandr
output above, my ATI card can support 75Hz rate but its running at 60
now. Indeed, I can xrandr it to 75 now but the setting would be gone
on the next reboot.
By the way, any suggestion on which startup script would be best to
place the xrandr command, ie. rc.local, Xsession, etc?
Seems pretty odd that you'd have to install ccm in order to change the
Unfortunately, I am unable run xrandr during boot time. I tried
placing the command (with absolute path) in .profile, Xsession,
rc.local, other dozens of startup scripts and yet it would not run.
Hoping to get more fresh ideas without installing the CCM.
