Solaris on MacBook -- Going Native

After I installed SXCE on MacBook Pro using Parallels I ended up with resolution 1024 x 768 points. This is nice but native resolution of the 15 inches MacBook Pro laptop is 1440 x 900 pixels, so the next step was to make the SXCE use the native resolution for SXDE in full screen mode.

I found two useful links -- one at Parallels Forum and another at DraginFly site, which helped me to get the native resolution. Here are the steps I followed:

  • Log as super user and copy file /etc/X11/.xorg.conf to file /etc/X11/xorg.conf
  • Edit the /etc/X11/xorg.conf as the following:
    • In the section "Monitor" add rows:
      HorizSync 31.5 - 100.0
      VertRefresh 59.0 - 75.0
      Option "dpms"
      Modeline "1440x900" 108.84 1440 1472 1800 1912 900 918 927 946
    • In the section "Screen" add row: DefaultDepth 24
    • For each subsection "Display" you want to use in the section "Screen" add a new resolution "1440x900" at the begin in the Modes line. For example:
      Modes "1440x900" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
    • Reboot.
