    problems with xfce4.1 on slack


    hi

    i got this problem the first time

    i have slackware 9.1 .....

    i have set the display resolution to 1024 X 768 @ 75hz

    and it works fine in gnome/kde .. as i have specified

    but when i log into xfce4.1 it reverts back to default like with large pixel resolution @ 60hz

    and it looks ugly ............

    then i fix it by running the gnome display resolution utility at the command prompt

    but when i reboot the machine ... the xfce reverts back to the ugly resolution and refresh rate

    i know i know ...... i have run xf86config and i have properly set up the video card driver and also the refresh rate of my moniter [ NEC MultiSync FE700+ horizotal synch @ 31-70 and vertical sync @ 55-120 ]

    and ..... gnome is runs perfectly well ........ but i dont want to run gnome display properties utility each time i log into xfce

    i neved had this problem with other distro or 2-3 times i installed the slack .... but this ....

    any suggestions?

    Can you check if the X server log says anything unusual? It's in /var/log/XFree86.0.log.

    dont worry i fixed it.

    actually i forgot to select the best max pixel for my moniter .. 1024 X 768

    for 24 bit colors

    thats why when i selected through gnome it stayed that way and xfce4 would defualt back to more than 1024*768 @ 60hz refresh rate.

    thanks.
