I had had a problem with this 24" wide-screen LCD under Linux. I'm
using it with Linux on the D-Sub connector and Windows on the DVI
Sometimes when popping back to Linux, the auto-adjust wouldn't work
quite right, and the result was slightly fuzzy text.
Finally got tired of it, googooed for a little bit, and found that I
needed to add a "Modeline" directive to xorg.cong. Now it seems to sync
up properly every time.
Oddly enough, when I finally rebooted this Linux box back to Windows
(for some timing tests), Win XP did not sync properly, either, but in a
different way: the driver chose 1920x1080 instead of 1920x1200.
No OS is perfect!
I love the smell of code compiling in the morning. It smells like... Freedom.
