Hi Dave,
Congrats on the new purchase.

Not too many. I used xorg.conf for our Samsung 17" and 19" monitors.
My son's 22" is on a Windows only machine so no direct experience with
setting up X on that monitor but I suspect it's probably very straight
forward.

I would suggest that you get out the manual for your new monitor and
find the exact specs - vertical and horizontal sync rates, horizontal
and vertical pixel count, etc., and then approach the X config as a
custom monitor. I've had better luck setting them up that way.

Keep in mind that with flat panel displays there is only one *real*
pixel count. There is no way to change how many pixels are on the
screen. If your monitor is 1620x1280 native then that's all it runs.
When you set a different resolution in xorg.config then software or
hardware has to make a conversion to the native resolution of the
display. This is different than an old style analog monitor that just
changed how fast it painted pixels and could change the real
resolution. Anyway, the reason I bring this up is I find it best to
first set the monitor up using whatever the actual resolution of the
monitor is and try running that resolution for a few days. If you're
happy with it then stick with it as it's the best picture quality and
the lower system overhead.

Whatever you do I'm sure you'll be happy.

How 20th century of you... ;-)

Missed them but I'll go looking. Here is California is all peace, love
and understanding, right? ;-)

Cheers,
