Display Settings


Hello,

I am get this message when I try to change the Display Settings:

You need to log out and restart the X server for the changes to take effect.

How do you restart the X server? When I logout and login my display is as it was.

Thank you for your time.

Hi.

The easiest way is just to reboot.
You can also switch to a console (Ctrl-Alt-F2), log in and do 'killall -3 X'. X should restart itself and put you back into the login screen.

Thank you, Got it, It was the monitor setting that was stopping me from changing the settings to a higher resolution.

Thanks again!
