You could try hitting ALT+F2 and typing xfce4-settings-manager or xfce4-settings-editor to run these. As for the screen resolution, I upgraded one more machine today and it went down to 1024x768 instead of 1280x1024. This was the only machine I had had in the past to adjust resolution by using XFCE's display applet. Every other machine would start directly at the correct resolution. In the previous XFCE version, the Display applet would correctly set this, but not in 4.6. Although the correct resolution was selectable, it just resulted to a blank screen. Finally, I used xrandr to adjust the resolution. This maybe of some help to you as well: Open an Xterm or Terminal and type: xrandr You should see a list of modes. Select the desired one from the list and count from the top, starting with zero. For example, to select the third resolution from the list, type: xrandr -s 2 If this works correctly, add xrandr -s 2 & in your .xinitrc just before the exec startxfce4 part, so it starts every time. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
