Changing the screen resolution for CDE

You can change your video card, monitor, or screen resolution settings for CDE at any time by:

  • At the login window select Command Line Login from the Options drop-down list.
  • Log in as root
  • At the shell prompt type in kdmconfig and make your desired changes (see note below)
  • Back at the shell prompt, type in init 6 to reboot your system.
  • Note : When using VMware, choose Xsun not the other option. Xsun seems to work better.
    Although you then can’t change your screen resolution within the Sun Java Desktop.
