X.org: How to change screen resolution on-the-fly?


I installed X-window-system based on X.org. However, it seems that Alt,Ctrl,+ and Alt,Ctrl,- key combination that used to work on X-window-system based on Xfree86 do not work anymore.

Is there any other key combination that can change screen resolution on the fly?

Thanks.


PS. Using fluxbox as window manager.

I use x.org. The key combinations still work for me, though I thought that x.org trapped all key events before sending them to the wm, so I can't imaging how it wuold be fluxbox's fault. Maybe you have a funky config somewhere.
