I am using GNOME2.10.0. I am normally weary about using GUI tools as I like to know what is going on under the hood, but I can't find a Control Center app. The only GUI tools I have found that adjust Screen Resolution are:
Neither of these have any per user settings that I could find. I looked around at some other apps, but none seemed to deal with the Screen Resolution and user settings. Do you know the actual name of the app or where it is located?
n/m You have to use the Screen Resolution GUI tool as the user that you want to have the resolution for. I logged in as a different user and changed the resolution and it worked. Thanks!
Out of curiosity, do you know where the per user settings are located on disk? And is there a way to change the default? I checked the box to make that resolution default on the computer, but it didn't affect existing users. Is it only for new users that this will take effect?
I am going to be remotely administering changes to this box and I would like to know how to set changes that will affect all users.
Thank you very much!
