The common way to do this - was? - a setting in /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 It is the "Modes" setting which in this example is 1152x864. Since FreeBSD 7.0 I have problems with this mechanism (it selects stupid screen sizes or even locks the machine - 1152x864 is the highest value I can get), so for me, this dirty workaround in my ~/.xinitrc works: xrandr --size 1400x1050 & xrandr --fb 1400x1050 & The use of xrandr should always work.
