I'd suggest to do something similar like with the keyboard: Put it explicitely into xorg.conf; I mean, autodetect is all fine, but in some cases, just crap comes out. :-) I had a similar problem here: X would only run 1024x768 or 1152x864, but not 1400x1050 as I would have liked it on a 21" CRT. So I did this: First, modify /etc/X11/xorg.conf: Section "Screen" Identifier "Screen0" Device "Card0" Monitor "Monitor0" Option "Accel" DefaultDepth 24 SubSection "Display" Depth 24 Visual "TrueColor" Modes "1152x864" EndSubSection EndSection This starts X in 1152x864. You'll see that there's not the usual bunch of depths and modes, just the one I want. Then, I put this into ~/.xinitrc: xrandr --size 1400x1050 & xrandr --fb 1400x1050 & Put it before any other program starts, and it leads to the desired screen dimension of 1400x1050. I'm sure you can play a bit with xrandr from within KDE in order to adjust the screen dimensions, and when you found it working, put it into your ~/.xinitrc so it will take effect after login. But NB that xdm / kdm won't be affected - it will run as xorg.conf specifies. You can check with xrandr's information options (refer to "man xrandr") and xvidtune. -- Polytropon >From Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
