Virtual Desktop


When I change resolution, it givres me an Extended Deskop or Virtual Desktop. How can I display the entire desktop instead of having to scroll

When you "change resolution", do you mean
on-the-fly, as in Ctrl+Alt+Num-+ ?

If so the problem is that the desktop resolution
will always be the resolution of the highest
available mode. If you need to have different
resolutions the quickest way to achieve what
you want would be a farm of XF86Config's
that you symlink to XF86Config alternatively,
and restarting the XServer.



Cheers,
Tink

Yes I am changing on the fly, what part do I have to edit when I look in the XF86Config file?
