I just installed a better LCD monitor on my wife's system.
Unfortunately, although Windows has quite happily reset the resolution
to 1280x1024, feisty keeps insisting that X is producing an error
whenever I press "Test" in the KDE configuration tool.
I installed the binary ATI driver, but that made no difference
Graphics card (according to KDE Monitor & Display | System Settings):
ATI Radeon (fglrx)
Monitor is a ViewSonic VX724
When I run the Test after trying to set the mode to be 1280x1024
(60Hz), I get the following, no matter what I do:
Sorry, this configuration video card driver
and monitor doesn't appear to work.
Messages from the X server:
Fatal server error:
(No there's no cut-and-paste error there, the actual 'Fatal server
error' is not displayed.)
Since this is my wife's first interaction with Linux, she is
Any idea what I need to do to fix this?
