What do you mean by colour scheme? Widget decoration, command line colours, RBG settings?

Use the buttons ....

Hi there, to change the resolution of your screen press Ctrl-Alt-+ to increase the resolution or minus to reduce.

However, the resolutions must be defined when you configured X.

Hope this helps
