File "/usr/share/system-config-display/xconf.py", line 377, in ?
dialog = xConfigDialog.XConfigDialog(hardware_state, xconfig, rhpxl.videocard.VideoCardInfo())
File "/usr/share/system-config-display/xConfigDialog.py", line 572, in __init__
self.xml.get_widget("secondMonitorLabel").set_text(monitor_list[1].modelname)
TypeError: GtkLabel.set_text() argument 1 must be string, not None

this is my xorg.conf: is it because i edited the file?
is there any way to fix my xorg.conf, i know it's a bit messed up, but if i switched back to the back original xorg.conf, i don't have direct rendering and no ati drivers, i get the mesa generic drivers.

which distro of linux?
did you follow a "how to" for installing the drivers?
where did you get the drivers that you installed?

hm...well that part is good.
maybe it forgot what monitor you have and you have to reselect it?
similar to during the initial installation, after rebooting it ran a first time setup where you could select your monitor make/model and it had your video card. make sure those settings are correct.

Hey, I just found and fixed this problem.

In my /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, I changed this:

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "blah"
Option "VendorName" "blah2"
Option "ModelName" "blah3"
Option "DPMS" "true"
EndSection

TO:

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "blah"
VendorName "blah2"
ModelName "blah3"
Option "DPMS" "true"
EndSection

And now my "system-config-display" command works okay.

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to actually have any affect....

what doesn't seem to have any effect? system-config-display, or the modifications to your xorg.conf? because if you didn't change anything, it wouldn't have any affect..
