Searching for the right Xorg resolution & refresh rate

It took me a while to find the correct tools for detecting it. Here it is :

– apt-get install xresprobe

– take note of the output from “ddcprobe” (this command will only available after the previous step)

– change “HorizSync”, “VertRefresh” & “Modes” in /etc/X11/xorg.conf accordingly

– extra parameters for eye candy :
1. make sure the correct driver is being used. e.g. Driver “intel”

2. Section “Extensions”
Option “Composite” “Enable”
#Option “AllowGLXWithComposite” “true”

Voila !!!
