Hmm, playing arround in KDE with -xrandr
$ xrandr --size 1280x768
Size 1280x768 not found in available modes
(?? it's in my /etc/X11/xorg.conf ??)
$ xrandr --fb 1280x768
xrandr: screen cannot be larger than 1024x768 (desired size is 1280x786)

my screen has dimensions 260mm x 160 mm
$ xrandr --fbmm 260x160
(of $ xrandr --dpi 125)
does not complain but does not help either..

OK, that was it for the keyboard matter. Thx..

No problem, it's all standard stuff. :-)

Similar question:
my portable is 1280x768 pixels, but KDE comes up in 1024x768, making
'wide' icons and text :-(
I tried to add in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf in Section "Screen" for
all entries in Subsection "Display" (different Depths), a line
Modes "1280x784" ... but this does not help..
In KDE menu / Settings / peripherals / Display / the only choice
for Screen Size remains 1024x768 without alternatives (as before) ...
How to remedy?

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"

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.
