Screen shifted to left for console and X for Acer AL2016W
I have a new computer with an Intel DH55TC Motherboard. Attempts to
install the i386 stable distribution failed because the installer could
not find the DVD reader. I was able to install i386 testing. I have an
Acer AL2106W monitor with a length/width of 1.6. When I boot the system,
KDE and the _console_ are not centered on the monitor. They are too
large in the vertical direction by about 1/2 cm (1/3 in). The display is
shifted to the left by about 6 cm (2.5 in) so the left part of the
screen in invisible and there is a black area on the right. The fonts
are poor. If I create a Xorg.conf with the largest mode being 1280x1024
instead of 1680x1050, X works but the screen is stretched.
Google shows that many people have had X configuration problems with
this monitor. But I am also having the same problem with the console.
Where is the best place to find real expertise about this problem?
