Linux on Laptops with 15.4" (Inch) WideScreen 16:10 (WXGA/WSXGA/WUXGA) Displays

A Linux installation on laptops (or notebooks) with 15.4" (Inch) WideScreen 16:10 and a dedicated resolution like WXGA/WSXGA/WUXGA may require some special tweaking of the X11 configuration file. Here are links to installation reports about Linux on this new generation of laptops. Have you written an installation guide yourself? Then please feel free to submit a new entry.

For technical details a about the X11 configuration see the XFree86 Video Timings HOWTO. To figure out a X11 ModeLine you may use tools like:

  • XTiming - XFree86 modeline generator (online).
  • Colas - XFree Modeline Generator (online).
  • GTF - XFree86 modeline generator, conforming to the VESA Generalized Timing Formula - GTF Standard.
  • videogen - creates XFree86 and/or fbset (Linux framebuffer device) modelines using hardware parameters.
