http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello every body. For along time a have a problem to setup the screen of my laptop for it's maximum resolution. I have found on the internet some workaround of somebody who uses Kubuntu: Quote: Dell Latitude D600 still shows the bug running karmic beta 1: Displaysize is notauto detected and dpi set to 96 dpi instead of the real 124 dpi. With the size im mm adjusted to the artificial 96dpi. xdpyinfo: ... screen #0: dimensions: 1400x1050 pixels (370x277 millimeters) resolution: 96x96 dots per inch ... Workaround: as karmic does not use xorg.conf in the default setup, I've modified /etc/kde4/kdm/kdmrc to start the xserver with the options -dpi 124. Sadly, it looks like radeon driver will never get it right :( Achim Please tell me how I can start the xserver with the options -dpi 124 in Ubuntu. Thanks a lot. (Hardware)
