I'm losing screen resolution by the hour, for some reason. [By the way, I'm going with "Absolute Beginners" here because I've been on Kubuntu for exactly a day, despite many years on Ubuntu. I don't think you need to be too detailed, in other words.]
When I installed yesterday, my screen res was at something like 1400*1280 (is that about right?) which is just how I like it. Today I logged in and found the screen at 1040*786 (or thereabouts), and started investigating. After tinkering a while, I rebooted now I'm maxed out at 640*480, at least according to my Monitor & Display settings.
I've tried "sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg", but only get
Here's what is actually in xorg.conf -Code:xserver-xorg postinst warning: overwriting possibly-customised configuration file; backup in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.20080515191738
I didn't expect to see "Configured Video Device" nor "Configured Monitor", but rather a list of specific settings.Code:# The usual commented out stuff...

Here's my lspci for the card:I can tell you from past experience that I require the nvidia-legacy driver for this card, and I have installed it via adept, but can't seem to select it anywhere. The only two that will even be considered as options are "nv" or "nvidia" (non-legacy).Code:01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV18 [GeForce4 MX 4000] (rev c1)
Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.
P.S. - I can't find where, in Kubuntu system settings, I would activate both ALT keys as 3rd-level selectors, rather than just the right ALT. This came to mind just now glancing at my xorg.conf. Thanks again.
