Bug Description

Binary package hint: login

perhaps the first package with this error is login ?

with Dapper I had 1024x768 on my iBook-G3-snow. Since Feisty there are only two choices for resolution : 640x480 and 800x600 which fill only a part of the screen. Right side (or rest of it ) is black. Lower part repetition of upper forth or fifth of the screen.

The very nice "great UBUNTU"-splash is 1024x768 ! (before login-screen, which is only smaller).

I am having the same problem as well. Maybe editing the xorg.conf file would work but I haven't tried anything. Otherwise, the system is very responsive.

Hi,

my sisters son changed from 24-bit screen to 16-bit as described in
http://ubuntuforums.org; that worked on my iBook-G3 (snow, dual-USB)

Hope having helped

I had the same problem on an ibook g3 600. I recommend adding these lines to your xorg.conf under the 'Monitor' section:

HorizSync 30-70
VertRefresh 50-160

That solved the problem for me.

Good luck!

Thanks for all the info in this post. It was very helpful.
To those with a Westinghouse LTV-32w3 LCD TV - use the following and you will see all resolutions...
        HorizSync 50-75
        VertRefresh 60-75
