View Full Version : [ubuntu] Display problem

July 24th, 2008, 12:49 PM
Hi there,

I have a slight problem with my display. Sometimes I accidentally hit a combination of keys on my keyboard, and it makes my display too big for my monitor. And basically I have to move my mouse pointer around in order to see the entire display. I am not sure how to undo this as I never know which keys I accidentally hit. I only ever seem to do it when playing WoW though. Any idea how to undo this? I can only solve it atm by restarting, which is obviously a pain.

Cheers :)

In that case, run
metacity --replace before playing WoW...

Thanks again. :)
