I have kubuntu 7.10 32bit, my production mointor is a wide screen standing on one edge, nice n tall.

I have manged to get kubuntu to rotate 90 degrees using this line in the xorg.conf file

Option "RandRRotation" "on"

Only problem now is, theres a portion of screen missing on th eright and a big black chunk of space below as it holds the screen sizes it started out with?

I read you could chamge the 'modes' from

Modes "280x1024@60" "1400x1050@60""1280x960@60"

To this


Now, nobody on the kubuntu forum has offered any sound advice, first, is that line of code OK (I don't want a blackout) secondly, could you just code in the sizes you wanted it to be as a single option?
