    Changing resolutions in shell


    Doh!
    I should have put my glasses on before sitting down!
    I just thought I would change my monitor in MMC to match the actual model.
    Like the eejit I am convinced I am I have managed to choose the wrong model monitor, now it is out of range and I don't have a clue what file or commands to use to edit it in the shell.
    What do I change to get back to what seemed to be an actually quite a nice display?

    Is there a decent resource someone can point this increasingly idiotic feeling nix newbie towards, which will show me all the shell commands?

    Meanwhile I'll just go and get my son to hit me about the head a bit.

    You could also try Mandrake's resident tools...I think XFdrake would be what you're looking for on the CLI
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.
