DPMS monitor on Shuttle X50V2 Plus
« on: December 20, 2011, 02:36:48 pm »
Hi,

After hassle to set up my "Shuttle X50V2 Plus" as MD (network adapter problem, screen resolution, etc. ..), it now works (thanks for the information found on the wiki).

But is there a reason why "DPMS monitor" does not work properly, knowing that this MD has an Intel video card (lmce 10.04)?
The screen turns off and comes back right away.

I know that Intel card is currently not recommended but that Shuttle seems perfect for integrating my kitchen! ;-)
And I think it's the only way to turn off the screen when I do not use it.

Greetings,

Philippe

Yes I will do that but I still have to translate the notes I took during the complete Shuttle configuration. ;-)

For the resolution I have put a modeline in xorg.conf:

Section "Monitor"
   Identifier   "Monitor0"
   VendorName   "Unknown Monitor Vendor"
   ModelName   "Unknown Monitor Model"
   Option          "DPMS"
   # 1368x768 @ 60.00 Hz (GTF) hsync: 47.70 kHz; pclk: 85.86 MHz
      
   Modeline    "1360x768"      84.50  1360 1392 1712 1744    768  783  791  807
   HorizSync   20-500
   VertRefresh   59-61
EndSection

And modify the Display subsection of "Screen" in xorg.conf:

Section "Screen"
   Identifier   "Screen0"
   Device      "Card0"
   Monitor      "Monitor0"
   DefaultDepth   24
   SubSection "Display"
      Modes      "1366x768"
      Virtual      1366 768
   EndSubSection
................

After that you have to report the same resolution for the Shuttle orbiter in lcme-admin.

Greetings,

Philippe

Would you mind filebinning your Xorg.0.log someplace. I'm interested in how the X-server utilizes your settings.

It works but the screens of the orbit (UI1) do not all use the maximum size of the Shuttle screen and it sometimes generates unintended actions.
And UI2 is not easy to use with fingers.

Merry Christmas to all!

I found a command that allows me to remotely turn off the screen: "vbetool dpms off".
But I do not know how to combine it to a touch of the screen and then re activate the screen with "vbetool dpms on" because the screen and touchscreen are no longer active!
Does anyone have a suggestion?

Why don't you paste your xorg.conf to a service where you don't spend a gazillion hours waiting for something to happen, like pastebin.com - using those services where you have to be a member to download stuff right away, and otherwise have to spend quite some time figuring out what is where, is not helpful, imho.

Hello Posde,

I had translated filebinning by sending the file to a service and did not try to do otherwise.
(Having an account on oron I did not see that it was less evident for non-registered)

So I start with pastbin!

Thanks. Good place.

Also, you might want to add a small note on the wiki about it. Maybe others have success with your information as well.
