Ubuntu Screen Resolution on Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600 with Trident XP

Filed under: Linux memo,Ubuntu — mariojump @ 9:48 pm

I installed Ubuntu Linux 10.04 on Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600 with Trident XP 16MB video, which is about 10 years old.
At first, the screen resolution was 800×600 on 1024×768 LCD.

Finding the following entry, I made /etc/X11/xorg.conf as shown below.

Then, the screen resolution became 1024×768.

$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Section “Monitor”
Identifier “Configured Monitor”
Option “DPMS” “true”
HorizSync 30.0-60.0
VertRefresh 50.0-70.0
EndSection

Section “Screen”
Identifier “Default Screen”
Monitor “Configured Monitor”
Device “Configured Video Device”
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection “Display”
Depth 24
Modes “1024×768” “800×600”
EndSubSection

EndSection
