I was so delighted that the monitor was usable that I just jumped for joy and 
got on with configuring.

But it still wasn't right.  As I say, it gets recognised in VGA, so I haven't 
had to do anything for ages.  800x600 was ghastly, and 1024x768 was dredged 
from my memory.

It was only when I used it that I realised that, hugely improved as it was, 
and usable as it was, it still wasn't right.

So I did what I should have done in the first place, and read the manual.  
(What was that that someone said about RTFM? :-(  )  The optimum resolution 
is 1280x1024.

Here is my /var/log/Xorg.0.log:

It says near the beginning that /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d was consulted, and 
didn't have the necessary information, so it is using the default monitor.  
That presumably is at least part of the problem.  So "all" I have to do now 
is put the necessary information into xorg.conf.d?  And I will sail off into 
the rainbow?  Or is there in fact a lot more that I ought to do?

I shall Google for xorg.conf.d and see what Google advises.

Thanks again, Slávek, for telling me which log to look at, and for all your
