Wink Horizonal position

Running RH 7.2 with Gnome. Cornea MP704 LCD monitor. GForce 2 card. I need to move my desktop about 2 mm to the left. When I do it with the monitor controls it goes back when I reboot. One time when I was using SuSE it had a position adjustment on setup but RH doesn't. Is there some kind of adjustment that can be done with X ?

xvidtune 2> /tmp/mymodeline

Then adjust and click "show".

Then copy the /tmp/mymodeline file contents somewhere in the /etc/X11/XF86Config

The best thing is to backup the original file and erase all Modeline lines and put the one xvidtune gave to you.

Thanks for the tip. I couldn't get your plan to work but it did point me in the right direction. I used xvidtune to adjust the display then I copied the numbers down and then edited the files /etc/x11/config and /etc/x11/config-4 and pluged in the numbers under the H and V freq. settings that I was using. I almost fell out of my chairwhen it worked. Thanks again for the pointers.
