screen resolution or default window resize?
I have an old Dell Latitude LS P3-500 256mb ram, 20gb HD, detached media bay. Used to be a great little laptop 5/6 years ago. I have Ubuntu 6.10 (Edgy) installed and updated. I have configured the video card with gkDebconf, the screen resolution is still the same 800x600 w/24bit depth @72hz. or 640x480. I know the screens is a Samsung LTN 121S6-T01 and I know that the specs resolution is 800x600 svga. I have had this laptop running 1024x768 w/24bit depth @72hz with
Win98/XP, Mandrake 9.2, xandros 2.0/3.0. I would like to get 1024x768 again with
Ubuntu. If that isn't possible I am looking for a fix to resize the windows to open in a default size and a defaultlocation small enough to fit on a 12.1 inch screen. Currently @ 800x600 16 bits @72hz I can drag a 6inch by 6 inch approximately
5 inches off either side and more than 6 inches off the bottom. My problem really is "Some windows open larger than my screen and I am unable or the window is set to not allow resizing, thus the control buttons are off screen." Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks, Darrell
