ok thanks a million biggrin.gif for some reason someone on here thought that a 19 inch display would lineup well but you need like 15.4 inch displays since 40cm is like 16 inches.

I haven't gone all the way back through all the posts you've made about this issue, but it looks like you're trying to get your catleap to work with linux, yeah?

Is it not working AT ALL, or is it just at some tiny resolution like 800x600? I had this same problem. It stems from the Catleap using an EDID format newer than Ubuntu 12 can read. You have to manually create a new EDID file and tell your driver to use that.

Luckily for you, I come bearing links!

http://learnitwithme.com/?p=342

Link includes a downloadable EDID file as well, which I didn't have to change at all to get working.

I followed that little guide and I was blasting 1440p in glorious Linux! I hope this helps, if your problem is different, let me know. Before I found that guide I found out WAY MORE about X server than I EVER wanted to know tongue.gif

You are almost guaranteed a slightly uneven backlight though, but its only noticeable with a black screen. All of them are pretty much the same though. Pick which one you think looks the best physically.

well since i hear nothing but how the catleaps have bad stands and lean to the right, thats outta the questions, and it seems alot of people been having problems with the crossovers lately, so im prolly going to stick with the achieva shimian.

questions if i buy a "achieva shimian PERFECT PIXEL" its guaranteed to have no dead, or stuck pixels?

It is highly likely. According to one seller, you get $10 back for each dead/stuck pixel, but it's probably going to not have any, as most monitors from that seller are already with very low to no pixel defects.

My catnip monitor has no dead pixels ore backlight issues so far (ordered from greenie). I'm really impressed. I know it's been discussed before, but I don't remember if a conclusions was ever reached on square trade. Will the square trade warranties cover these fellers?

Also, for those worried about the catnip's stand - it's pretty bad, but it's only noticeable when you touch or move the monitor. I can't tell that mine is leaning to the right or anything.

You do know dell makes 27"& 30" ips monitors that are also 1440p&1600p, obviously alot more expensive ...
