Title: X11 Configuration for Captiva E1903W monitor on Ubuntu
Topic: blog
Date: 2008-02-21

One of the employees of materialboerse.de GmbH got a new LCD monitor yesterday. Graphical interface (X11) stopped working. I tried to reconfigure the xserver with dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg, but that didn't help. Finally I edited the frequencies and modes manually in /etc/X11/xorg.conf with the values from the monitor's manual and now everything works fine.
