Hi there. I’m having a problem trying to get into my desktop.
I have an nvidia GT8600 video card and it was properly set up in the 10-monitor.conf and 20-nvidia.conf files. I wanted to increase my screen resolution from 1024x768 to 1920x1024 so I checked the available modes with xrandr which showed me 1024x768 @75.00, [email protected] and others, then I edited the 10-monitor file into the Display subsection in the Screen section from
modes “1024x768_75.00” to:
i wanted to see the applied settings without reboot, so I installed xorg-xinit package with pacman in order to use the command “startx” and restart the X window system and I got a “(EE) can’t open display” error, so I decided to reboot and I can’t pass the login screen.
I went into tty4, edited the 10-monitor.conf file and left it how it was before and removed the xorg-xinit package I installed, but the error persists, now If I run xrandr i get “can’t open display error”.
I’m freaking out right now since I have to do some important work. I know this is offtopic but I would really appreciate any help, I have looked into the arch linux forums and no luck.
Thanks in advance.
