So I do a vanilla install of 10.04 Lucid Lynx, and login. The display resolution is clearly smaller than it should be.
I did a quick Google search, and then run
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1024 x 768, maximum 4096 x 4096
VGA1 connected 1024x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 0mm x 0mm
1024x768 60.0* 800x600 60.3 56.2
640x480 59.9 59.9
Looks great- all I have to do is add a higher mode, 1360X1020. So I run
cvt 1360 1020 and get this:
# 1360x1020 59.99 Hz (CVT 1.39M3) hsync: 63.47 kHz; pclk: 114.75 MHz
Modeline "1360x1020_60.00" 114.75 1360 1448 1584 1808 1020 1023 1027 1058 -hsync +vsync
Alright. I copy the modeline, run
xrandr --newmode with the modeline that I have, and there's no errors. However, here's the problem. When I try to use the new resolution, this is what happens:
xrandr --addmode VGA1 1360X1020_60.00
xrandr: cannot find mode "1360X1020_60.00"
I can't figure out why I'm getting this error, because I seem to have done all of the steps right. If it helps, the monitor is an Acer AL1714 running on a Dell Optiplex GX520. Thanks for any assistance in advance. `
