    2. Hey, thank you for this guide. I’ve a problem. I’m working with analogic cable and the system doesn’t recognize the monitor. How I can set the resolution now? With nouveu I had the same problem. So I know I can set the resolution from the nVidia panel, but I can’t because the resolution now is 640×480 and is impossible to sets it to 1920×1080. Any ideas?

      • Hi Primax,

        Could you post your current /etc/X11/xorg.conf and /var/log/Xorg.0.log example to http://pastebin.com ?

        Then could you also tell more specific what cable, monitor and graphics card you are using?

          • Hi Primax,

            Thanks, yes problem is this:
            [ 25.123] (WW) NVIDIA(0): CRT-0 does not have an EDID, or its EDID does not contain a
            [ 25.123] (WW) NVIDIA(0): maximum image size; cannot compute DPI from CRT-0’s EDID.

            Could you also post your xrandr command output:

            
            xrandr
            

            This should be fixable with xorg configuration, but good to see xrandr output before.

              • Okay, try following.

                1. Create modeline

                
                cvt 1920 1080 60
                

                Output:

                
                # 1920x1080 59.96 Hz (CVT 2.07M9) hsync: 67.16 kHz; pclk: 173.00 MHz
                Modeline "1920x1080_60.00"  173.00  1920 2048 2248 2576  1080 1083 1088 1120 -hsync +vsync
                

                2. Create new mode using xrandr

                
                xrandr --newmode "1920x1080_60.00"   173.00  1920 2048 2248 2576  1080 1083 1088 1120 -hsync +vsync
                

                3. Add mode using xrandr

                
                xrandr --addmode DVI-I-0 1920x1080_60.00
                

                4. Change mode

                
                xrandr --output DVI-I-0 --mode 1920x1080_60.00
                

                If this works, then you could add it to xorg.conf, like:

                
                ...
                 
                Section "Monitor"

                    ModelName      "LS24D300HS"
                    Modeline      "1920x1080_60.00"  173.00  1920 2048 2248 2576  1080 1083 1088 1120 -hsync +vsync

                    Option         "DPMS"
                EndSection
                 
                ...
                 
                Section "Screen"
                    Identifier     "Screen0"
                    Device         "Device0"
                    Monitor        "Monitor0"
                    DefaultDepth    24
                    SubSection     "Display"
                        Depth       24
                        Modes      "1920x1080_60.00" "640x480"
                    EndSubSection
                EndSection

                    Could you then try following, first install monitor-edid:

                    
                    dnf install monitor-edid

                      • Hi primax,

                        I found your monitor manual and looks like your monitor Horizontal Frequency is 30 ~ 81 kHz and Vertical Frequency is 56 ~ 75 Hz, so modify following lines on your xorg.conf:

                        
                        ...
                            HorizSync       30.0 - 81.0
                            VertRefresh     56.0 - 75.0
                        ...
                        

                        And reboot your system. If 640×480 is still only option, then try to run xrandr commands again, is it working then?

    3. Thanks :)

      • Hi Bilal,

        Do you mean Screenshot 3.1?

        It’s just a Gnome-Terminal with default settings. Or do you mean something else?

        • I have recently started using Linux and have settled on Fedora after trying MINT, UBUNTU, KUBUNTU, OPENSUSE etc. And your article on installing the nvidia driver worked flawlessly the three times I have had to install the driver. Many thanks for that.

          But the bash prompt in Fedora is just plain white unlike what you find in MINT. This seemed to be a very simple task which required some simple code storing the value of the PS1 to be appended to the ~/.bash_profile as mentioned in all the following sites:

          https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Color_Bash_Prompt
          https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-customize-your-bash-prompt-on-a-linux-vps
          http://blog.bigsmoke.us/2008/12/05/my-new-bash-prompt
          http://www.askapache.com/linux/bash-power-prompt.html
          http://mediadoneright.com/content/ultimate-git-ps1-bash-prompt
          http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/howto-linux-unix-bash-shell-setup-prompt.html

          But it never changed any color for me. Finally, I put some code in ~/.bashrc as I discovered that the system-wide bash is located in /etc/bashrc in my installation [don’t know if that is universal in Fedora 23].

          Having new PS1 value stored in ~/.bashrc gives a nice and colored prompt after su but for the normal user it does not change any color unless i source ~/.bash_profile after every login. Don’t know how to set the value permanently.

          Hope I have been able to explain my problem, although, it may not be remotely related to your area of interest. And I was hoping that you might be able to write a guide for it if it is a big enough issue.

          Thanks,
          Regards

          Reply
          • Sorry, now I understand what you meant.

            Add your PS1=’…’ to normal user ~/.bashrc or ~/.profile. System wide /etc/profile or /etc/bashrc.

            ~/.bash_profile is only sourced by bash when started in interactive login mode. TTY, SSH etc.

            ~/.bashrc should be sourced when you open terminal emulator (non interactive login mode). Gnome-Terminal, Konsole etc.

            ~/.profile should be sourced when you log in graphically. Gnome session etc.

            • Many thanks, you made it super easy! Shows the significance of knowledge.

              Since you have been so kind, can you please make a guide on installing google earth in fedora, it installs without a glitch on MINT but does not install on fedora 23.

              Another comment regarding the skype installation guide.
              First time I installed the nVIDIA driver first and then isntalled skype and skype did not work. But the second time, I installed skype first and then installed the nVIDIA drivers and although, I was expecting that skype would stop working now but it did not :)

              • Hi Bilal,

                You are welcome!

                Looks like that the Google Earth RPM package won’t install on Fedora 23. It conflicts with file from filesystem package.

                This is quick workaround to get Google Earth working on Fedora 23. First install following packages:

                
                dnf install freeimage openssl-libs wget xdg-utils redhat-lsb
                

                Then Download Google Earth RPM package and extract files from package:

                
                ## As root or normal user ##
                mkdir /tmp/google-earth
                
                cd /tmp/google-earth
                
                rpm2cpio /path/to/google-earth-stable_current_x86_64.rpm | cpio -idmv
                
                ## Following commands as root ##
                mkdir -p /opt/google
                cp -a /tmp/google-earth/opt/google/earth /opt/google/
                

                Then run Google Earth (as normal user):

                
                /opt/google/earth/free/googleearth
                

                Check following to solve problems with Skype and NVIDIA drivers.

      Thanks so much for this guide. I had tried going the RPM Fusion route that had worked in the past for me up through Fedora 21. All kinds of strange behavior and I could not boot my machine into run level 5 at all. I uninstalled the akmod-nvidia-34xx from RPM fusion and installed via your instructions above and everything is working perfectly. Something is drastically wrong with the RPM Fusion drivers/Install process.

    14. Hey JR, I’m writing here because I can’t reply your last answer. I did everthing, but now in the right side of the login screen there is a vertical black bar. When I login, the bar dissappear but the resolution is not correct. So, I went in settings and I set 1920×1080 but the aspect ratio is incorrect (4:3) and it is unchangeble. Any ideas? Thank you for your time.
