Cool Screen resolution


I installed rh 7.3 and I don't know where to set my screen resolution. I know it is stupid. When I go to the controle centre under hardware browser where I can view my devices, I do not have the option to change my graphics settings but only to view them. I am logged in as root.

That's is one of the big "pain in the as*" things in linux ( no easy right click=>properties=>settings=>resolution thing like in windoze)

goto /etc/X11/XF86Config and edit it there
or run
Xconfigurator from console without X started
and set multiple resolutions there

good luck
