10.10 sis 16x10 or 16x9, x11 doesn't contain xorg.conf

Asked by jjd on 2011-07-10

Fujitsu Siemens ESPRIMO-Mobile-V5535, SiS, Ubuntu 10.10,

I had 9.10 and the extra driver and it worked fine, but of course that's no more. I now have 10.10 and am stuck with 800x600. I've tried the forums and can just about follow some of it until I come to xorg.conf which on my system doesn't even exist in x11.

My knowledge of software and systems doesn't amount to that much, but it seems strange to me that Puppy Linux (from experience) and Mandriva (so I've heard) can both drive this screen "out of the box" but a big popular user friendly system like Ubuntu has problems.

Can you help, please?

There is no xorg.conf anymore since Lucid, if needed it can be manually created.

Example.

Sorry, still no joy. I attempted to follow the instructions given, with the following results;

I'm aware I may have introduced a tiny syntax error but if I have I can't see it.
Hope this helps
