http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hi guys, I'm running F11 under VMPlayer and can't seem to keep maintain a larger screen size, it seems to always default to 800x600. I tried creating /etc/X11/xorg.conf to push the size, but that doesn't seem to work. Code: # Xorg configuration created by system-config-display Section "ServerLayout"         Identifier    "single head configuration"         Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0         InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard" EndSection Section "InputDevice" # keyboard added by rhpxl         Identifier  "Keyboard0"         Driver      "kbd"         Option      "XkbModel" "pc105+inet"         Option      "XkbLayout" "us" EndSection Section "Device"         Identifier  "Videocard0"         Driver      "vmware" EndSection Section "Screen"         Identifier "Screen0"         Device    "Videocard0"         DefaultDepth    24         SubSection "Display"                 Viewport  0 0                 Depth    24                 Modes    "1024x768" "800x600" "800x600" "640x480" "640x480" "640x400" "640x400"         EndSubSection EndSection I also tried "forcing" it by putting a xrandr command in /etc/rc.local, but that didn't seem to help either. Code: #!/bin/sh # # This script will be executed *after* all the other init scripts. # You can put your own initialization stuff in here if you don't # want to do the full Sys V style init stuff. touch /var/lock/subsys/local xrandr -s 1280x800 TIA (HowTos)
