A single window is too big and everything else is OK? I can understandNo matter what you do to Display settings in Linux , it is not going
the screen being the wrong size, which would affect everything
including the panel etc., but not one window. The display config
doesn't know anything about windows.
If you do have the wrong screen resolution, then system-config-display
is where you fix it, but this affects everything.
Gnome is a desktop environment, as is KDE. Metacity is a window managerThis may be fixable through your desktop configuration controls, butI run gnome and metacity; is that what you're asking?
you don't say which dekstop you're using.
often used with Gnome (the equivalent in KDE is kwm). Since I rarely
use them that's as far as I can go, but if your problem is with one
window then the fix will be there if at all and not in the display
allow a higher resolution than 800x600 on the eeePC 7" display, if you
have a 10" display like on the eeePC 900 than you can set it to a higher
My little steel tape shows a 7" diagonal on the screen. There are wide black bands on both sides, which I've been told are speakers.
Fwiw, Main Menu > System > Administration > Display shows 640x350, millions of colors, hardware autoconfigured.
The first tab, if you click on 640x350, also offers 640x400, 640x480, and 720x400 -- iow,, it doesn't even get up to 800x600.
Would one of the other offered resolutions likely do better than 640x350?? I've sometimes had to make large changes in what's autoconfigured, but I've other times gotten in over my eyeballs by fiddling with these settings.
And the same is true of /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Now that I know the trick of dragging with the left Alt key down, I can usually do *something* with gpk -- but it sure would make life a lot easier to have the window fit the monitor.
I have the same thing you have and I have accepted to using "alt" key.
