    Talking Re: HUGE font after Install: how to fix this?

    pytheas22,

    THANK YOU

    yes, thanks, because you find the solution and solved my problem!

    I first did that:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-i810
    and answer was I had the latest version

    Then I changed xorg.conf to force it to use i810 like you wrote:
    Code:
    Section "Device"
            Driver  	"i810"
    	Identifier	"Configured Video Device"
    EndSection
    After reboot, it works.

    I am posting now from Xubuntu

    I will try to go further now, such as mount NTFS drives of the laptop.

    Thanx,
    within

    The laptop is not connected (wifi is used normally), so apt-get won't work. I'll try my best to use ethernet connection...
    As I said, I think that in 8.04, both the i810 and intel drivers are installed by default, but X uses intel and ignores i810 (in Gutsy only intel was installed by default, I think). So you may not need to download anything. You can try just adding the "driver i810" line to xorg.conf; if i810 is not installed, X will just fail to start and you can use vi to change the value back to intel.

    Also, if there's an open or WEP network in range, it's easy enough to connect from the command line with a command like:
    Code:
    sudo iwconfig wlan0 mode managed channel [network channel] key [WEP key] essid [network name, in quotes]
    sudo dhclient wlan0
    Connecting by hand with WPA is quite a bit trickier; it's probably not worth the effort. For details, see this thread.

    Anyway, when you get a chance to try the i810 thing, let me know if it helps.
