I have almost everything working fine since install yesterday...
except when i get a gui screen, the screen appears to be moved to the right a bit... without switching my monitor controls to the left how do i switch it to the right to have it looking correct?
please none of this "your monitor is on its side" nonsense...
Is there a program I can use that moves the screen over automaticaly? I noticed with win98 I had a utility that came with my video card that would do that for me... even though I noticed that Linux never asks for driver disks and seems to have the necessary drivers preloaded (which i think is the way it should be)...
At any rate... no doubt you will tell me to edit the configuration file as "that is the best way to learn"... at the same time I do not want to wreck the file because if im not mistaken i think it could mess up my gui... is there an efficient way to go about it? maybe a decnet site that tells you how it should be done?
i tried pulling up xvidtune and i couldnt...then tried as root and was able to... looks like a very old program! anyways...i was successful in moving over the screen to the left...however, when i rebooted later the screen went back over to the right...how do i keep in its correct place all the time?
especially with Mandrake geared towards autoconfiguration. There might be something overwriting your (is it called HardDrake or something close to that?) settings. I have the same problem sometimes dealing the all the various configs in SuSE.
I don't have a particular answer but that might be somewhere to start.
