Default xorg.conf and Nouveau

Fedora 17 / KDE

Can I use the nouveau driver in xorg.conf to Lock in the resolution ?.

I have a computer that defaults to 1920x1080 and that resolution is to
high, and I have a older friend that will be using this computer and I
want to Lock into

1280x1024x75 .

I don't want to use the nvidia drivers they are to unstable and nouveau
drivers

are doing a good job on this computer.

Are you referring to the binary blob from nVidia, or the repackaged
kmod-nvidia. If the latter, I've been having nothing but good luck with
them on this computer for years.

Try adding something like the following to your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, where
the "Identifier" is what you get from `xrandr -q`.

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "DVI-I-1"
Option "PreferredMode" "1280x1024"
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "Device0"
Driver "nouveau"
EndSection

There's at least two ways to do it:

Increase the font sizes, leave the resolution at what it is (which is
important with LCD panels, which do not scale well - you end up with
fuzzy hard to read text, compared to larger and clearly defined text).

In the personal preferences for the user, select the resolution that
they'll use. Rather than try to change the system settings.
