Re: Changing resolution and frequency outside of X?
I'm using SuSe 9.2, so I'm not certain if your distro has it, but see if you have something called "Resapplet". I had to install it from the DVD, after the OS was installed. I have not used it yet, so I can't tell you if it will work, but here is what YaST says about it:
Resapplet is a simple utility that sits in the system notification area and allows user switching of their resolution and refresh rate. It uses the xrandr extensions to switch the resolution on-the-fly and userE resolution preferences to save the resolution. It works in both GNOME and KDE, as it uses the system notification area.
