Dell 2405FPW Windows XP display driver .inf and .icm

posted in linux, windows |

Just found this link at dell’s web site offering the display driver and colour calibration profile for the dell 2405 fpw ( manual ).


I’ve been searching quite a lot since there is no driver on their documentation CD nor you can find it in their download center.

To make it running in Linux (SUSE 10 with gnome) i had to add the following modeline to my xorg.conf ( command: sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf  ) and set the correct resolution in the gnome control center ( “Screen Resolution”).

  • Modeline “1920x1200_60.00”  154 1920 1968 2000 2080  1200 1203 1209 1235  +HSync -VSync

And since i had my old CRT monitor connected to the d-sub connection on my 6600GT i had to add in the “Device” Section:

  • Option       “ConnectedMonitor”       “DFP”
  • Option        “IgnoreDisplayDevices”   “CRT”

But there is still a problem. In Linux i got heavy tearing in games and on the overall work-flow. Windows XP doesn’t show this effect so i wonder what’s the difference.
