crtl alt +- really works


I have seen many people on many boards saying this does not work for changing resolution. You have to use crtl and alt on the right side of your keyboard and the + or - on the numpad. It works for me on redhat 7.

Well, it does not work for everybody. It all depends of the resoultions that you've set at your XF86Config.
