Configuring /etc/X11/xorg.conf file in Ubuntu 8.04

Configuring /etc/X11/xorg.conf file in Ubuntu 8.04

In case your X windows failed to display, you have to edit the /etc/X11/xorg.conf. I had such problem before and it was resolved after I edited the “Monitor” section. Here is what my X configuration file look like:

Section “InputDevice”

Identifier “Generic Keyboard”

Driver “kbd”

Option “XkbRules” “xorg”

Option “XkbModel” “pc105”

Option “XkbLayout” “us”

EndSection

Section “InputDevice”

Identifier “Configured Mouse”

Driver “mouse”

Option “CorePointer”

EndSection

Section “Device”

Identifier “Configured Video Device”

Driver “nvidia”

Option “NoLogo” “True”

EndSection

Section “Monitor”

Identifier “Configured Monitor”

Horizsync 30-81

Vertrefresh 60

EndSection

Section “Screen”

Identifier “Default Screen”

Device “Configured Video Device”

Monitor “Configured Monitor”

Defaultdepth 24

SubSection “Display”

Depth 24

Modes “1280x1024_60”

EndSubSection

EndSection

Section “ServerLayout”

Identifier “Default Layout”

screen “Default Screen”

EndSection

Section “Module”

Load “glx”

Then restart x by typing:

sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start
