    Cannot Set Resolution to 1024x768


    When I configured X-Windows for the first time, I configured it correctly, and set a default resolution of 1024X768, however, it boots to 800x600, and I don't know how to change this. I know I need to edit the X-Windows config file, but I'm not sure where it is, or exactly what to do. I'm running Debian 3.1. Can anyone help?

    The file is /etc/X11/XF86Config. Look for a line that says "DefaultDepth", down there you have the resolutions that you may want to use for every resolution depth.

    THANK YOU! I just added "1024x768," restarted X-Windows, and it worked like a charm. I'm glad people like you are around here to help!
