Hey, I am trying to setup xorg on a used laptop I aquierd. I installed XOrg, did xorgconfig and did startx. It says the given depth (24) and (16) are unsupported by this driver. Did I install a driver that I shouldn't have? OR does this laptop not support 16 bit?
I installed both xf86 vga drivers and libgl-dri.
I switched it to 8 bit, which fixed that problem. Now it says taht fluxbox cannot load a file...gives a bunch of errors that t can't read session variables and closes.
Warning: Faild to open file(/usr/share/fluxbox/nls/en_US.UTF-8/fluxbox.cat
Fluxbox's site is down or something...is there something I need to do to configure fluxbox?
I'd thought I'd let y'all know I got it to work finally. Turns out my laptop isn't crappy! The problem was I didn't do the hwd stuff.
Ok, X works. But the UI that is drawn is smaller then the screen. So I have huge black bars around the screen. The monitor can handle up to 1600x1200, but ti says that it can't find that mode. Do I need to change the DPI or something?
In /etc/x11/xorg.conf you can set all screenmodes you wish. Then use the tool xrandr to perform select a profile.
A line may look like this:
#Modes "1440x900" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
