Screen Resolution is wrong in all users





raytamar
I changed the resolution on my desktop and applied it to all users. Even selecting different options in settings won't do the trick. I logon to root and as sonn as I key in STARTX, I'm hosed!

What distribution are you running? If it's Debian based (like Ubuntu) then you can try running the following from the command-line to Reconfigure XServer:

Code:
dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

It will ask you questions about your mouse and keyboard, not just resolution.


Also, most of the graphical utilities will back settings up before they change things.
Perhaps try restoring a backup of /etc/X11/xorg.conf which will be lying around in the same directory.

Ditto. That's very important in this case.

For SuSE systems, just running the command 'sax2' will usually fix any graphics problem.

He probably did that.
If yours isn't a SuSE distro, you'll probably have to do something else.
