Angry Linux Mess


I am locked out of my user destop because Gnome CC extends beyond the limits of my screen and there is no way to close it, not even after shutdown--it reappears. My cursor can't find the location to pull the screen back.

This is probably happening because I am visually handicapped and increased the size of all objects. So, now, commands like "Revert" are out of reach. I've gone back and reduced font size to no effect.

How do I close Gnome CC, so I can get back to my user desktop???

Thanks. You guys are a big help.

if you are logged in try pressing alt+F1 to open the start menu. there should be a option somewhere to set screen resolution (system settings --> display). i only hope it appears inside your screen *g*
