XF86 Modes/TVout Question


Hi,

I've got my Screen set up:

SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1600x1200@75Hz(VESA)" "1280x1024/85Hz" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
Virtual 0 0
EndSubSection


Is there anyway I can get it to NOT pan around resolutions if I drop from the largest (1600x1200) to lower resolutions. By this i mean, when I'm in 1600x1200, my standard resoltion which I prefer, if I drop to say 1024x768, its still a 1600x1200 resolution image but can only see 1024x768 size part of it at a time, and need to pan around to see the rest.

Can this panning be turned off? I need this as I would like to be able to drop my resolution to 1024x768 (For TVOUT) then run movies/videos/games in full screen and not have them pan off the screen.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi.

KDE 3.2 has a utility called 'krandrtray' which can change X's resolution on the fly properly.
