Yet another question on how to increase the screen resolution!

I realize this question has been asked various times before. A lot of
the solutions posted didn't work for me and a handful of others were
beyond my comprehension. I am an inexperienced Opensuse user. I'm
running OpenSUSE 12.1. My monitor is Acer AL1715 and my graphic card is
Nvidia Geforce GT 430. I installed the nvidia driver and configured it
accordingly. However, the issue is that on windows 7, the screen
resolution is 1248x1024 but on suse the maximum resolution available is
1024x768. I find that a bit uncomfortable. Also, the nvidia driver
doesn't seem to be detecting the screen. It's labeled as CRT-1.
Moreover, the xorg.config file was empty. I tried to follow one of the
solutions by adding a certain code in it but that didn't help.  Typing
xrandr in the terminal would give off the following results:

"default connected 1024x768+0+0 0mm x 0mm
1024x768       50.0* 
800x600        51.0     52.0     53.0  
640x480        54.0  
512x384        55.0  
400x300        56.0  
320x240        57.0"

I'd like to add that I'm using KDE 4.8 if that is relevant. I'd
appreciate any help on the topic. I'm still learning how to properly
handle OpenSUSE and I'm still a novice (a noob to put it bluntly) so if
you can spoon-feed me the solution I'd be grateful.

Screen Resolution Question
hi! I am developing an application in PB 6.5..the display resolution of my display screen at work is different from that at my home. The windows and the objects in my windows are all appearing different at my home than at my office screen - for example - the left most text and objects in my window are having their first few characters go beyond the left margin of the window so that I cannot see users are all most probably having different screen resolutions - how do I make sure the application displays properly for all resolutions? Any help is appreciated Thanks Ragni U...

Question about screen resolution
Hi all This answer to this may be more of a "Windows/Hardware" issue, however it affects my PB app so I need to resolve it and this is a good ng to start. I have two laptops. The older is on W2000 and my newest is XP. Both have the same screen sizes(15 in) so I am purplexed as to what's happening. On the older, the resolution was always set at 1024x768 and life was good in the IDE and runtime. However, if I set my new machine to that setting it displays as if it was 800x600 on the old one.What's going on? Is this a video driver issue? Is there another setting that a...

Screen Resolution Question
Dear group, oooh i've just taken delivery of a lovely new 17" flat screen monitor and the specs recommend a screen resolution of 1280*1024@60hz. Now, i have changed to that configuration through the configuration screen, and also through the Screen Size and Rotate and the screen looks great at those settings. However, when i restart the computer (MDK10 KDE)the settings always revert to 1024*768@75hz After a bit on Googling i think the settings are stored in xf86config, am i right? So, heres what (i think) is the relevant section in that file, Section "Monitor"...

Yet another bootsplash question
As a Linux noob, I really want to learn as much as I can, but I also want to sell my friends on it, so I need the graphical splash screen. Originally when I installed 11, the splash screen was there, but GRUB was configured wrong by the installer and I had to change the Menu.1st entries. Since then, no splash screen. I do have the parameters vga=791 and splash=silent set. Changing the value for "vga=" will successfully change the video mode during startup. So I guess I'm getting the splash screen, but it's verbose instead of silent, and it's black instead of...

Yet another OO question
Hi all, I've just been reading a bit about accessor get/set methods. I have a method: sub even{ my $self = shift; my $even = shift; $self->{_even} = $even if defined($even); return $self->{_even}; } This basically does what a get and set method would do. So why would I need a set/get methods? This value is passed to the object like so: $object->even('even_value'); This is setting the value here, although I'm sure this isn't the recommended way of doing it. Should objects only have values set when instatiating? m...
