Fedora 15 graphics drivers for Amilo pro v2060..?

Postby liviococcia » Sat Jun 04, 2011 6:25 pm

Hello members, just a quick question please, my FS Amilo v2060 pro is running Fedora 15 with the new Gnome 3 shell, everythings working well but...., my screen resolution is 800x600 and I'm wondering if there's a way to increase the resolution to 1024x768, are there any specific Fedora/linux graphic drivers, or, do i need to change some system graphic settings,, maybe modify some configuration file.

I'm pretty much a newbie to using the 'terminal' for code instructions, and finding my way around Fedora 15, but i have to say it's a great OS.

Any help from members would be great.

regards
Livio

Fedora should bring the necessary drivers for the V2060's Intel graphics chip. However I haven't tried Gnome 3 so far so I don't know if there are some special problems to be considered in connection with the hardware acceleration that is needed for the Gnome shell.
Can you please post the output of the following command:
Code: Select all
xrandr -q

Thanks hikaru, sorry, afterwards i realised i was actually running on a 1024x768 resolution, and as you say it has recognised the Intel graphics chipset, so i was wronge on both counts, and so it appears not not be a problem.

I still have a resolution query though hikaru, i thought i'd read somewhere that the Amilo v2060 could run at a higher resolution than 1024x768 and if this is so, why is it not offered under the screen settings of Fedora?, my system is fully updated

I have to say Fedora 15 using Gnome 3 does really run well, and it looks great also, i really like the way the GUI interface works.

kind regards

According to the datasheet the display of the V2060 only has 1024x768 pixels but you can run up to 1600x1200 pixels via an external monitor. If you connect a monitor that is capable of more than 1024x768 the screen settings dialogue should offer you the appropriate resolution.
