I have a netbook running on Debian whose LCD screen is partly broken (fallen from a desk). The problem is about 30 columns on the left of the screen not working anymore (totally black). The original resolution of the monitor is 1024x600, but i can no longer see anything displayed on this edge of the screen.
I'd like to set Xorg display size to 1000x600, starting at coordinates 24,0. This way the black area wouldn't overlap my display (for now it's impossible to work with maximized windows).
I had no xorg.conf, so I ran have ran Xorg -configure, tweaked xorg.conf and ended up with this: http://pastebin.com/FuXhRSBe and I thought it should work. Instead, Xorg always falls back to a 800x600, centered display when I use this.
How do I get Xorg to show a 1000x600 display, offset by 24px ? Thanks
