    Re: Low resolution login??

    Here's a part of /var/log/Xorg.0.log, that seems to report the switching to low-resolution. I couldn't find anything that points to X switching back to high-resolution inside KDE, though.

    Here is where my Dell laptop with 6 series video card loads the module, so you can see it is version 169.12

    Re: Low resolution login??

    I've had a similar issue with one desktop and now with my virtual machines (since upgrading to VMWare Fusion 2.0.2).

    Basically, these machines always default to 640x480 or 800x600 resolution, though they can do much higher resolution. This also messes with the panels and widgets in both GNOME and KDE (alignments seem to be set at GD/KDM and not when logging in).

    This help page shows how I solved the issue, though the resolution is now "hard coded" or permanent: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/Resolution

    One misleading thing is the line to set resolution. The command that worked for me is "xrandr -s 1280x960", though one could use another resolution is needed and appropriate for the videocard/monitor.

    I hope this helps someone and saves them a few hours of searching around like I just did.

    Re: Low resolution login??

    Oh, and when I get a bit more time, I will search the bug database(s) for why KDE doesn't set resolution apon login (only after going to System Settings -> Display).
