Cool XF86Config


Hi! i had to install a driver for my new graphic card and configure everything manually. with some help this worked out fine. the only trouble is that some applets and the applications in KDE or Gnome appear extremely huge. i don't know whether or not i have to configure this in the XF86Config or somewhere else. could someone who knows drop a line, please? thank you

i made a mistake in the mode section of the XF86Conf (had tried sth. out and forgot to reset) so the machine couldnīt perform more than 640x480. the monitor frequencies were not optimal either. but now it works well. thanks
