Cheap Korean LCD

A few years ago, I got some cheap 27″ korean display (strongly influenced by this). Getting it to work properly with Xorg was not straightforward due to some corrupted EDID. I’m not sure where I got the original instructions from (might be there). I suspect that this record might come by handy when switching to wayland…

Anyway, I ended up with:

$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/30-screen.conf
Section "Screen"
  Identifier "Screen0"
  Device "My GPU"
  Monitor "QHD270"
  DefaultDepth 24
  Option "CustomEDID" "DFP:/etc/X11/shimian-edid.bin"
  SubSection "Display"
  Depth 24
  EndSubSection
EndSection

and:

$ hexdump shimian-edid.bin
0000000 ff00 ffff ffff 00ff 6204 049b 0000 0000
