Screen Resolution

By AndeAnderson ·
OK. I've finally got Mandrake Linux 10.0 installed.

But, the installation set my screen resolution to the highest setting the video card can support and I can not find any way to change it.

Trying to search the Help files is like trying to find a perfect grain of sand at the beach. It only searches the specific page you have selected. For example, I selected the Introduction page thinking the search would then search the whole document. Wrong! It only searched the Introduction.

So how do I change the "graphical interface", or "screen resolution" as we Windows users know it, so I can read the documentation without a magnifying glass?

Any guidance will be greatly appreciated.

from the menu ( the star icon )
system>preferences>configure desktop

this will open the KDE Control centre.

then the pripherals> display
and you can change colour depth and resolution.

Thanks. Now why can't they have such instructions in their Users or Help Documentation?

BTW: There were some minor differences, in 10.0 the Menu goes system>configuration>configure your desktop
