X windows - Screen Problem ??

X windows - Screen Problem ??

Post by Simon Ko » Wed, 01 Dec 1999 04:00:00


I have installed Redhat 6.0 and setup my XF86 through xf86config. I
could bring the X windows up by typing startx. The only problem that I
could not reslove is the icons and wording all too big and I can only
view, 1/3 of the total page content.. I change the combination of the
setting and testing but still failed. I am using Sis 6326 AGP. Where
could I find the root of the problem and solve it ?? Thanks in advance.




1. (stupid question on) CDE mouse: moving full-screen window from MID-screen?

I thought that by pressing one of the three mouse buttons
when mid-screen, I could slide the window itself around.


Then I tried with control and then shift.  Nope.

How *do* you do it?

(My problem: running sol7 on sparcstation-5, expanding a
window to full-size (via clicking on that little square
sitting up at the window's upper right corner), it'd fill
the console's (glass) screen *perfectly*.  

Then got a sunblade-100, sol9 (now upgraded to 12dec03), and
it expands too big -- *same* sun 20-in console, *no* changes
made to any dt-thing.

Asked here once before; no one had any clue as to why
the difference, or what to do about it.)

Also, anyone have a nice cheat-sheet on mouse-clicking
in cde?
