I have been trying to setup the XF86Config file so that I could switch
(with Alt-Ctl-+) between 800x600 and 1024x768 *without* the larger
resolution being my virtual desktop size all the time.
Usually I work in 800x600, but sometimes I need a bigger screen (when I
am playing xboing, for example). As soon as I add 1024x768 mode,
xfree86 turns on the vitual desktop for my 800x600. Is there any way to
tell it to *always* match the desktop size to the physical resolution of
I searched dejanews and found a couple of wrong answers to this problem:
comment out the "vitual" lines in XF86Config. That does not work in
this case. In the absense of the 'virtual' directive, the x server
simly elects the biggest resolution mode as the size of the virtual
desktop (1024x768 in my case).
Thanks in advance. Please email a reply as well.
