Okay, closer. Thank You. I commented out the HorizSync and VertRefresh
lines restarted the X session and the screen appeared to fill more but I
still had a black bar to the left at 1600x900. Going to Computer ->
System Settings -> Computer Administration - Display -> Size and
Orientation, I found it at;
Changed it to
Still no full screen width. In fact it got narrower.
Changed it to
Size 1440x900 (which had not been an option previously)
The screen appeared to resize to the full width of the display and
'Refresh' now shows 59.9 Hz.
This is all quite non-intuitive.
I won't be pushing any buttons until I understand the effect. I
understand why HorizSync and VertRefresh settings would not be necessary
for an LCD display but the xserver obviously knows what it's connected to.
Why does it set those? And, where are those commented out option lines
in my xorg.conf documented?
