The problem is that when i open anything ( like internet explorer, or Kdevelop for instance ) I cannot go to the end of the page. As with Kdevelop, if i cannot get to the part where i have to specify the name of the project then i am not able to do anything at all.
By "Problem not resolution" i mean to say here that its not the pixels that r causing the problem. If I change the resolution from say 640*800 to 1024*2400 ( or whatever) this doesnot change the way files r displayed, and i still cant get the fonts to be smaller.
Let me clarify one thing here, I am using the Generic monitor type bcoz my AOC Monitor is not supported by Linux. And when I ask Linux to get my montior ( which it takes to be AOC Spectrum), the Xwindows doesnot start.
I hope I am more clear this time.
Where you choose what monitor you want.
choose custom .
and printed on the back of your moniter you will find ratings and numbers.
fill in the custom with the numbers on the back of you monitor
PS for someone reason if you use Mandriva like i do,
when i changed monitor with the wizard it wrote
monitor1 instead of monitor0 in xorg.conf.
when you change it check Server Layout and Monitor numbers match (causes x not to start)
