Default Unable to load X Server Display Configuration page

Hoghw NvNews!

I have problem with NVIDIA Geforce 9600GT and i want to ask you for some help.
I don't know why nvidia-settings doesn't work fine.

In Nvidia X Server Setting >> X Server Display Configuration i'm getting this:

Code:
Unable to load X Server Display Configuration page: 

Failed to parse the following modeline of display device 
0x00010000 'EIZO S2231W' connected to GPU-0 'GeForce 9600 GT':

I'm using Ubuntu 8.04 64-bit, kernel: 2.6.24-17-generic, architecture: x86_64 (Intel Core 2 Quad).


My /etc/X11/xorg.conf (geneteated by nvidia-xconfig):
Code:

you can also use the attached patch.
Code:
git clone git://people.freedesktop.org/~aplattner/nvidia-settings
cd nvidia-settings
patch -p1 < /path/to/patch.patch.txt
make
./nvidia-settings
(you can also override the nvidia driver supplied one with this)

Same problem here:
Code:
Unable to load X Server Display Configuration page:

Failed to parse the following modeline of display device
0x00000002 'Samsung SyncMaster' connected to GPU-0 'GeForce 7600 GS':

source=xserver, source=vesa, source=edid :: "nvidia-auto-select"  108.000  1280 1328 1440 1688  1024 1025 1028 1066  +HSync +VSync
And the vertical refresh is wrong (1280x1024 at 60 Hz); 169.12 works perfectly and I get 1280x1024 at 75 Hz.

Fisrt of all, How can i start nvidia-settings with LANG option?

Second, Ralph, How did you fix your problem?
Where can i find this section/config file/ or something?
Code:
source=edid :: "nvidia-auto-select"  119.000  1680 1728 1760 1840  1050 1053 1059 1080  +HSync -VSync
And later change it...

First of all, login Linux as root, then start NVIDIA X Server Settings from a terminal with:
Code:
LANG=C nvidia-xconfig
Select X Server Display Configuration and change Resolution and Refresh; then, click on Save to X Configuration File and restart the X server.

I should mention that you can work around this problem without losing the translations on the stock GTK+ widgets by setting the environment variable LC_NUMERIC=C.

I pushed a patch for this to the git repository at http://cgit.freedesktop.org/~aplattn...c90755e6a721b4

The fix will be in the copy of nvidia-settings shipped with the next driver release.
