 G400 dualhead screen dimesntion problem
Hi All,

I just got G400 with dual head setup and it seems to work fine.  Very
picky about the XF86Config file though.  Thanks to someone else who
earlier in this news group suggested to use the XF86config file from the
readme.txt off Matrox's website.  One or several of the setting are
necessary to get it working.

The question I have now is how to get the resolution/dpi and screen
dimensions set correctly.  Right now the resolution is being set at 179x95
according to xdpyinfo when I specfically set it to 95 by specfiying the
-dpi option in serverargs in startx.  The screen dimensions according to
xdpyinfo
are:

screen #0:
  dimensions:    2176x864 pixels (308x231 millimeters) resolution:  
  179x95 dots per inch depths (1):    16

Ghostview and Startoffice render text very wide under these settings.

Does anyone know how to set the dimensions and resolution so that these
apps display correctly?

Thanks Rick

I cna't answer your question, but I just went to the Matrox site and noticed
that they have a Linux "driver" update dated 21 Sept 2000.  Do you have the
latest?  The URI is
