    Some questions about x11


    Well, I am really new to Graphical Linux.
    And well till this point on it looks like crap.
    The cursor is Ugly the Menu has a to small font.
    And Conky does half work...

    But no fear, I am going to fix this all.
    Well I run debian with xfce(since I dont like gnome or kde).
    So well I still have the default x11 Cursor. and I think its just to hiddious.
    I downloaded one, unpacked it to /usr/share/cursors/xorg-x11 I did go to my xfce menu to cursor. Selected my one. And.. nothing happend. I did restart x once I even tryed to reboot the entire system. Bad luck.
    So, how can I set my cursor to the right one?
    About the xfce font that is way to small. I cant find how to fix that.. :/ So does anyone have a idea? And conky works half since I dont have the newest version.
    So I wonder, can somebody post his/her sources.list here so I have a good mirror list?
    Now only the dvds are in there.

    Well thanks alot,
    Cheers
    Robin

    Hi Robin !

    First of all, fix X Server and select correct Refresh rates and resolution. It will sort out most of problems.

    Check your Monitor's Manual for supported HorizSync, VertiRefresh rates and Resolutions. Open Terminal and execute this
    Code:
    su 
    dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
    Accept default options and enter correct HorizSync/VertiRefresh rates when prompted. Select supported resolutions from the list. Reboot machine.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    First it killed x11..
    Thats pretty weird. If you have entered supported Refresh rates and resolutions then X Server should have worked fine.
    Which Graphics Card do you have and which Video Driver are you using?
    Execute this
    Code:
    cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf | grep Driver
    lspci | grep VGA
    Post output here.

    Heh, it works fine now
    I did do something from w/ Framebuffer support.
    But still. It only syncs abit. Its not real improvement.
    What I mean by that is the Resolution is fine, the Hz are fine.
    But I still dislike my cursor etc

    You havn't posted the output of above commands. There are a lot of hack packages available for Graphics cards and those packages improve X Server performance significantly.

    I think I am not clear.
    X11 looks good.
    I love xfce. Though I still need a nice skin for it.
    Everything is synced nice. No compains there. But How do I change my cursor for example..? I cant find that out..
