    Unhappy Cannot view whole desktop/window

    Hello.
    This is my very first post
    I have tried looking for an answer to my question but often did not understand what I found so would be very grateful if someone would take pity on me and lend a hand.
    Recently upgraded to Hardy on my tiny elonex webbook. Cannot now view all of my desktop and browser window. Can change the resolution but this does not help and the display settings when asked to detect my monitor say 'Monitor unknown'.
    Please advise as alt tabbing getting quite dull!
    Thanks

    What version of Ubuntu are you using?

    Try with:

    gksu displayconfig-gtk

    Thanks Ivanajar.
    When I run that in my terminal, the terminal shuts down so I am assuming I am getting a 'command not found' type message that I can't see as it's off the viewable screen. i tried the same with sudo displayconficg-gtk but had the same problem.
    I was mistaken in my earlier post as upgraded twice in one day - am using Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope.

    Did you use the netbook remix ? It copes better with small screens.

    If you upgraded to Jaunty, you don't have displayconficg-gtk. What graphics do you have?
