I ran that same command and rebooted the computer 5 times with no result. Everthing is HUGE.
Here's what my xorg.conf file looks like
My screen resolution should be 1280x1024 by the way, but as you can see there's not even a modeline for whatever reason.
I hope someone out there has a solution to this problem. I have no idea why it worked the first time, but not this time.
I had a similar problem in ubuntu,
what happened was that I needed to reinstall the driver.
What I did was delete the driver.
update the kernel and the headers to the latest ones.
Then installed the nvidia driver via terminal.
i saw that the driver was compiling for a .17 kernel and I had a .18 kernel.
What I did was go back and installed the .17 kernel and headers, then the driver again and all was swell.
Not sure if this will help or not.
