I'm running Fedora 33 on an LG Gram 17.
I have a BenQ EX2780Q External Monitor.
If I go to System Settings --> Display and Monitor I can set the external monitor to a
range of resolutions, however the resolution I want is not on the list.
I have a script I can run as root to set the resolution I want:
# cvt 2160 1200 60
xrandr --newmode "2160x1200_60.00" 217.25 2160 2312 2536 2912 1200 1203 1213
1245 -hsync +vsync
xrandr --addmode HDMI-1 "2160x1200_60.00"
xrandr --output HDMI-1 --mode "2160x1200_60.00"
However, I would like the 2160x1200 setting to be added to the list in System Settings
--> Display and Monitor permanently, how do I do this?
Can I add an xorg.conf file? If so does anyone have any simple examples?
I would check that the EDID from the monitor reports support for the mode you are
You can get EDID from xrandr —verbose I recall, and use an edid decode program to view the
details. It been a while since I had to do this and no not recall the exact program to
Also check in dmesg for any messages about edid problems.
