changing monitor resolution with kde2

ive been looking around like crazy and i cant find where in the hell you can reset the monitor resolution. i have debian 3 and im using the gui kde2. when i installed debain 3 i chose the proper monitor size and i installed 640*480, 800*600, and 1024*768. im sure there has to be an easy way to do this.

Hi there. It does not matter what window manager you are using, you have to do the same.
First try doing <crtl><alt><+> to get an higher resolution and <crtl><alt><-> to get an lower one.
To permanentally change the resolution, you have to edit the file "/etc/X11/XFConfig-4". I'm currently at school so I can't look it up for you right now. I will report back.
