Richard Jones' Log: Dear Interwebs: HOWTO Run X11 on an LG L204WT LCD Monitor

Wed, 07 Feb 2007

This is a reprint of the information from this forum discussion. The modeline is:

Modeline  "1680x1050@61"   146.25   1680 1772 1948 2204   1050 1053 1059 1089 +hsync -vsync

I'm running a VGA cable plugged into a DVI socket, which I hope to replace with an actual DVI cable soon. I'm hoping that it will still work...

Update: yep, the DVI cable works fine.

Update2 : DVI works without the need for the above modeline, thanks to EDID (thanks for the hint, Toby). Make sure you've got your i2c module loaded (Load "i2c" in the "Module" section).

I really thought that EDID meant that you mever had to worry about modelines again.

Indeed with the DVI cable EDID handles everything for me.
