Default Resolution keep changing in KDE!


Well this is matter, When I startup my system with Debian Lenny/KDE3.5 The resolution is set on 1280 x 1024. Too little for my monitor.

So I go configure Kdesktop section, display section and change it to 1024 x 768 which is the right one for me, and it world fine.

The only problem is that when I reboot the system it falls back to 1280 x 1024.

Is there anyway I can prevent this from happening? Thanks in advanced!

You must edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Post the section with the resolutions...that is if it is not obvious.

        Monitor         "COMPAQ S710"
        DefaultDepth    16
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth           1
                Modes           "1280x1024" "1024x768" "832x624" "800x600" "720x400" "640x480"
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth           4
                Modes           "1280x1024" "1024x768" "832x624" "800x600" "720x400" "640x480"
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth           8
                Modes           "1280x1024" "1024x768" "832x624" "800x600" "720x400" "640x480"
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth           15
                Modes           "1280x1024" "1024x768" "832x624" "800x600" "720x400" "640x480"
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"

        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth           24

Remove the "1280x1024" part including the quotes from the depth 16 Modes line.
