x display settings...

after installing xfree86-4.4 from slackware-current (all available precompiled tar.gz's) under ControlCentre in KDE (3.2) it doesnt have the option under Display where u can change the display configurations as video card... monitor ... colour depth and so on...

or is there a GUI version of the XF86Config file where u can change settings manually rather than manually through editing the values in the file...

Thanks in adavance...
