You could try writing a personal startup script
- a small program that runs when a specific user logs in. Set the default resolution low so that the 'other users' are kept happy, and have the script file run when you
log in. I'm not sure how to do this myself
, but if you post a question in the programming
forum, you should get some good advice.
As for the text size in the console: If you're running Mandrake, try running the terminal instead. There is a menu for text size, keyboard layout, text/background colours, etc. Very useful!
