Graphical Configuration

Txartel Grafikoa eta Pantaila Konfigurazioa

No matter which graphical environment (also known as desktop environment) you chose for this install of Mageia, they are all based on a graphical user interface system called X Window System, or simply X. So in order for KDE Plasma, GNOME, LXDE or any other graphical environment to work well, the following X settings need to be correct.

Choose the appropriate settings manually if you think the details are incorrect, or if none are shown.

  • Graphic Card

    If you need to, you can select a specific card from this expandable list. See honela deritzon atala “Aukeratu X zerbitzari bat (Konfiguratu Txartel Grafikoa)”.

  • Monitor

    You can choose Plug 'n Play, if applicable, or choose your monitor from the Vendor or Generic lists. Choose Custom if you prefer to manually set the horizontal and vertical refresh rates of your monitor. See honela deritzon atala “Aukeratu zure Pantaila”.

  • Resolution

    The resolution and color depth of your monitor can be set here.

  • Test

    The test button does not always appear during install. If the option is there, and you test your settings, you should be asked to confirm that your settings are correct. If you answer Yes, the settings will be kept. If you don't see anything, you'll return to the configuration screen and be able to reconfigure everything until the test result is satisfactory. If the test option is not available, then make sure your settings are on the safe side.

  • Options

    Here you can choose to enable or disable various options.


There is a risk of damaging a monitor if you choose refresh rates that are outside the frequency range of that monitor. This applies to older CRT displays: modern monitors will reject an unsupported frequency and normally enter standby mode.

Aukeratu X zerbitzari bat (Konfiguratu Txartel Grafikoa)

DrakX bideo txartelen datu-base osoa dauka, eta normaleanzure bideo gailua behar bezala identifikatuko du.

Instalatzaileak ez du behar bezala zure txartel grafikoa detektatu, eta zein duzun baldin badakizu, hautatu ahal izango duzu zuhaitzean:

  • Vendor

  • then the make of your card

  • and the model of card

If you cannot find your card in the vendor lists (because it's not yet in the database or it's an older card) you may find a suitable driver in the Xorg category, which provides more than 40 generic and open source video card drivers. If you still can't find a specific driver for your card there is the option of using the VESA driver which provides basic capabilities.


Be aware that if you select an incompatible driver you may only have access to the Command Line Interface

Some video card manufacturers provide proprietary drivers for Linux which may only be available in the Nonfree repository and in some cases only from the card manufacturers' websites. The Nonfree repository needs to be explicitly enabled to access them. If you didn't enable it previously, you should do this after your first reboot.

Aukeratu zure Pantaila

DrakX pantailen datu-base osoa dauka, eta normalean zurea behar bezala identifika dezake.


Selecting a monitor with different characteristics could damage your monitor or video hardware. Please don't try something without knowing what you are doing. If in doubt you should consult your monitor documentation.


This option allows you to set two critical parameters: the vertical refresh rate and the horizontal sync rate. Vertical refresh determines how often the screen is refreshed and horizontal sync is the rate at which scan lines are displayed.

GARRANTZITSUA da ez aukeratzea pantaila mota bat zure benetako panatilaren freskatze tasa baino haundiagoa duenik, kaltetu baitezake. Zalantzarik izanez gero, ezarpen kontserbadore bat aukeratu eta ikusi zure pantailaren dokumentazioa.

Plug'n Play

This is the default option and automatically tries to determine the monitor type from the monitor database.


Instalatzaileak ez du behar bezala zure pantaila detektatu, eta zein duzun baldin badakizu, hautatu ahal izango duzu hautaketa zuhaitzean:

  • Manufacturer

  • Monitor model


Selecting this group will list nearly 30 display configurations such as 1024x768 @ 60Hz and includes flat-panel displays as used in laptops. This is often a good monitor selection group if you need to use the VESA card driver when your video hardware cannot be determined automatically. Once again it may be wise to be conservative in your selections.
