Talking Stupid KDE question


I have pretty much used Gnome, Gnome, and uh...Enlightenment. How do you change resolution in KDE? I didn't find anything under Control Center, I even did a search for resolution...all in vain.

Depends.

You can use control center-->peripherals-->display or if you are using a nvidia card use the NVIDIA X Server Settings or if its not there run (nvidia-settings) and remember to save new config to xorg.conf file .

Hope that gets it.

I don't have either. Display, or nVIDIA (<--as far as I know)

Workaround

Add the resolutions/modes you want in xorg.conf

then, when you are in kde,

control+alt+[plus or minus]

literally
control>alt>+
control>alt>-

this "scrolls" through your modes list in order
as far as i know, it doesn't scroll color

this works in any x-environment, i think.

[edit] whoops...(this is the second today i must be pretty out of it]: this makes you have to scroll around your screen, which isn't cool. (like when you have to put the mouse on the edge to move it)

try right clicking on the desktop > configure desktop>display

that may help

if you are using LCD and you select a resolution larger than it can display it WILL scroll regardless.
