Knoppix 3.6 DE resolution and language problem
I'm a n00b and having trouble configuring X for a newly installed Mandrake 10.1 distro, and was told to run Knoppix to use the configuration settings [for Mandrake].
My two primary [Knoppix] problems now are the language and the resolution (I accidentally downloaded the German ISO, this is a problem because I cannot read German).
Hopefully this explanation makes sense. The desktop is only using maybe 60% of the screen, so everything is too small to interpret. The used area is not centered though; I have two partial images of the desktop (so two cursors). These partial images stretch across the whole screen, separated by a black stripe of about two inches in width. Along the top and bottom there are similar stripes, but horizontal. Could someone please explain how to center and enlarge the desktop image? I could only use a sequence of steps that don't require too much reading or differentiating between icons (e.g. click nth icon from left on taskbar...). I do have the monitor's specs.
From a forum search on Knoppix language settings, I learned Knoppix 3.7 Pro has a console command for german -> english (knoppix lang=us); this did not work for me. Is there another method for 3.6? Regardless of the language, should I still be able to use the GUI settings for Mandrake?
Thanks for any info or links.
