Hanns-g HL-198 Widescreen Monitor

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I am impressed! My old 1280x1024 monitor died three days ago, and with some trepidation I have purchased a new Hanns-g HL198 widescreen monitor with a resolution of 1440x900. I was anticipating having to mess around a little with configurations to get the new resolution, but I needn't have worried. I unplugged the old, plugged in the new, switched on and there it was with no action on my part. I seem to recall in Windows XP I had to mess around with the graphics driver for this same machine and same graphic card when I changed from a 1024x768 to 1280x1024 monitor, but Ubuntu did everything (Hardware)
