2017-02-21 07:01:25 -0500 asked a question External monitor fedora 25

I'm trying to set up my laptop to use an external monitor. This monitor is 2560x1440p. I am able to select it as on option the screen goes black but then it comes back again as a 1080p and not 1440p as I would have liked. I used to fix it (when I still ran ubuntu) by running some xrandr commands but those don't work any more. These were the commands that I used. If I don't run these commands the option for the 1440 resolution doesn't show up in the first place. I switched back to x11 to see if my old commands worked there. How do I fix this so it works in either Wayland or X11?

xrandr --newmode "2560x1440_33.00" 162.77 2560 2688 2960 3360 1440 1441 1444 1468 -HSync +Vsync
xrandr --addmode HDMI1 2560x1440_33.00

xrandr --newmode "2560x1440_60.00"  312.25  2560 2752 3024 3488  1440 1443 1448 1493 -hsync +vsync
xrandr --addmode HDMI1 2560x1440_60.00

They don't work anymore unfortunately. I'm not sure how to fix this but there is some useful information that I found that might help.
