I am helping a friend with their kubuntu (which I installed for them over a year ago). They have had a monitor change after a hardware failure, and they are now using 8.04 via an upgrade.

My guess is that something in one of the recent updates over the past month or so has reset the resolution used in the login screen (which is kdm) which used to be ok.

Screen resolution for normal use is ok.

The login screen shows the username and password fields at the far right hand side of the display, but the menu items list icon is off the display and cannot be seen.

Any ideas please?

You might have to edit xorg.conf:
