kde4 refuses to retain the screen resolution that I choose.
I am currently using kde4 in Debian (Squeeze). I need to use a lower resolution than the one selected by kde4. Every time I change it to suit my needs, after rebooting in kde4, the resolution changes and the highest one supported by the GPU is automatically selected.
Please note, that I was never comfortable with native resolutions. More often that not, I change to one that is lower. I am using kde4 screen resize module that temporarily succeeded to change the screen resolution to that which I need.
I also tried to create an empty xorg.conf file with file permissions that allow everyone to write to it without success. The screen resolution applet, only changes the screen resolution for the current session, without bothering to save the changes so that they can be used by the successive boots.
Is there a way out of this labyrinth?
