I'm using an HP 2009m 20" widescreen monitor, and have a Nvidia 8500gt video card. Latest Nvidia drivers from RPM Fusion are installed.
My problem is that the only widescreen resolution I have a choice of in both nvidia-settings and gnome's "Display preferences," is 1600x900. While this is fine for desktop apps, my video card doesn't handle games very well at that resolution.
So, I know my card and monitor are capable of displaying other widescreen resolutions (such as 1360x768) because they work in Windows 7, but Fedora doesn't give me the choice of selecting them.
Is there a file that Fedora uses to determine the supported resolutions? How would I be able to select resolutions that I know are supported (at least in Windows 7)? Can editing xorg.conf give me this ability?
I just looked in my xorg.conf, and it's surprisingly slim compared to others I've seen. Here it is if that would help:
# Xorg configuration created by livna-config-display
Option "AIGLX" "on"
Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"
Option "Composite" "Enable"
