Are you running linux?? do you know how to use linux?
Open a terminal and as root type: nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf or type: sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf if your not root user.
You should be able to find the line that says shmconfig and change it to true.
save the file and restart the computer.

Where does ubuntu save its X configuration files ?


In newer versions of Ubuntu, the X11 settings are automatically detected and generated without a need for a configuration file, unless you are using a proprietary driver. If you have a proprietary driver, the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf is still used.

My touch pad works with a mouse,but when I tap my touch pad nothing happen's,thats when I lef click my mouse,it will move the icon,but wont tap on toanything


This has happened to me and it took me hours to figure it out. I hope yours is the same problem...
Make sure you dont have your touch pad set to off. On my ASUS It is F9 on my keyboard. the key shows an icon of the touch pad with a slash (/) through it. If you do not see this on your keyboard try looking in control panel and see if there is a setting in there. Good Luck. Please let me know if this worked.

I am using ubuntu 10.04 linux operating system ,but it,s screen resolution is not good .is there any possibility to download and install any vga drivers to get better resolution


Hi,

Go to System, on the top bar, then Preferences and select Monitors.
On the Monitor Preference screen there will be different resolution settings that you can choose.
If there are any resolution settings higher than 800X600 like 1024X768 etc. select it and apply.

If there is no other settings available go to System then Administration and select Additional driver.
When the Additional drivers screen appears check if it recommends a a driver to be downloaded.
If it does, download the driver and then you will be able to get higher screen resolutions.

If there is no additional driver to download it gets a bit tricky.
You will need to edit your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file.
The file will look someting like this:


Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Philips 190S"
ModeLine "1280x1024" 108.0 1280 1328 1440 1688 1024 1025 1028 1066 +hsync +vsync
Option "PreferredMode" "1280x1024"
Option "DPMS"
HorizSync 30-82
VertRefresh 56-76
EndSection
Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Monitor "Philips 190S"
Device "Default Device"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Depth 8
Modes "1280x1024" "1152x864" "1024x768" "832x624" "800x600" "720x400" "640x480"
EndSubSection

SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1280x1024" "1152x864" "1024x768" "832x624" "800x600" "720x400" "640x480"
EndSubSection

EndSection

Section "Module"
Load "glx"
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "Default Device"
Driver "nvidia"
Option "NoLogo" "True"
EndSection


It will be wise to make a backup of this file if you are going to edit it. (xorg.conf.old)
Inside the file you will see your screen and its resolution. (Preferred mode)
You need to change the resolution, save the file and restart your session.
If all went well your resolution will be set to what you specified, if your display freaks out replace the xorg.conf file with the xorg.conf.old file.

Hope one of these options solves your problem!

Sync out of range message 29.8k/60, how to clear this ?


This monitor (supposedly) only supports the following ranges:

Horizontal Rate (KHz) 30-70 Vertical Rate (Hz) 56-85
29.8K < 30K (although darn close).

This is usually fixed in the settings for your graphics card. Are you running Windows or Linux?

If Windows: You can load up the drivers for the monitor (I never do) or choose to hardwire the monitor to a VGA LCD 1024x768 and then even force the vertical refresh to 75Hz (or something nice). Try that.

In Linux (under Xwindows), you'll need to look at the /etc/X11/xorg.conf (if using that) and change the section for the monitor to include the limits as shown above.

Do a "man xorg.conf" for the parms. They're also on Xorg's website.

Analog - Out of Range.....going to higher video res


Sometimes less is more when configuring X, even with the improvements in X.org

I'd remove everything from the section except Section "Monitor" and Identifier "Monitor0".

Let the boot process do the auto-detection of hardware: card and display monitor.

After logging in -- hope this works -- go the Menus:
System > Preferences > Display and try to get things working through that interface.

I have recentley wiped my harddrive and installed windows vista ultima my laptop is acer 5715z since i did this i cant find the options to turn the tapping off on my mouse pad it really gets on my nerves...


Sounds like the touchpad driver you have is not the right one. Having a compatible one and the right one is the difference between XP and Vista. Also, sometimes on some laptops above, or below your touchpad, there should be a button. if you push the button, it should toggle between on or off..Or try to disable the "tap" feature in System Configuration, Peripherals, Touch Pad and be sure to click "Apply".

You can modify the xorg.conf file as follows,
As root edit:
/etc/X11/xorg.conf
In the touchpad stanza add the following lines...
Option "TapButton" "0"
Option "HorizScrollDelta" "0"
Then edit:
Option "VertScrollDelta" "0"
(if it wasn't already)
Save it, logout, reboot.

Last resort is to search microsoft knowledge base or your pc manufacturer. That seems to be a growing problem in vista but not seen in XP.

Ubuntu Screen


The same way you set it on any Linux.  If you don't like the gui setting controls in look/feel, feed in boot commandline options or go into /etc/x11/xorg.conf and throw in a few likeable resolutions and restart X.

   These answers are totally in the bundled notes and documentation, not to mention the Ubuntu wiki; why ask here if as if something is broken in a unique way?
