Ubuntu non-gdm change in resolution
I followed this tutorial from a previous post on how to remove the graphical startup and automatically log in http://doc.gwos.org/index.php/Automa...Authentication
After doing so it loaded the default .Xsession in my user folder instead of the blackbox.desktop file in /usr/share/xsessions which referenced .bbstartup.sh in my user folder.
So I changed the .Xsession file to look exactly like my .bbstartup.sh file and it started up all the same programs as before.
Everything was the same except the resolution seemed to change because all teh windows and text were a great deal larger. Why would that change?
I am still using the same xorg.conf file because both of my screens still work, It doesnt make sense to me why the resolution would change. There is still an nvidia logo on start up.
My only thought is that maybe ubuntu loads some sort of graphical manager/config file or something when gdm starts up.
It has to be with the resolution of differnt windows, firefox looks the same but everything else doesnt. I reinstalled gdm and logged in and everything was back to normal.
Does anyone know of way to auto-login with out loosing settings?
I need some help bad. I cant stand looking at large text.
If you have any questions ill be happy to answer.

Perhaps you can try
startx -- -dpi 100"To express yourself in freedom, you must die to everything of yesterday. From the 'old', you derive security; from the 'new', you gain the flow."

i think i figured a little something out when ubuntu desktop doesnt startup a font library isnt started.
its not actually my resolution its fonts that were present before are gone now so it falls back to default
what font libraries are loaded when ubuntu starts?

[QUOTE=antidrugue]Perhaps you can try

Option "DPI" "75 x 75"
