Firstly, forgive me my English. xD

Xorg on my laptop doesn't recognize properly modes of external monitor. I've got 24" fullhd monitor but the highest found resolution is 1024x768. Of course in KDE configuration no other resolution can be selected.

It is easy to solve. Firstly, I've got to generate the modeline:
Code: Select all
cvt 1920 1080 60

Then using the output I've got to add a new mode:
Code: Select all
xrandr --newmode "1920x1080" 173.00 1920 2048 2248 2576 1080 1083 1088 1120 -hsync +vsync

And finally add the mode to the monitor:
Code: Select all
xrandr --addmode VGA1 "1920x1080"

After it in KDE configuration new resolution can be selected.

Of course all of these can be done using xorg.conf file. But there is one problem. I don't use xorg.conf file, it is empty. A think, that most simple users never looks at this file.

My idea is to add to KDE configuration ability to set a custom resolution. All those command I used would be then run automatically. I think its quite easy to develop.

We could even link this idea with this one:
brainstorm.php#idea94280_page1
And give users possibility to create profile with more then one custom resolution.

To the moderator: please change the tile... It should be:
'Custom resolution in monitor configuration'

Sorry for the mistake...
