Re: how to change CDE resolution in Tru64 unix

A quick way is to edit the file:

/usr/dt/config/Xservers

And change the line:

Local local@console /usr/bin/X11/X :0

By something like this:

Local local@console /usr/bin/X11/X -screen0 800x600 :0

If you want to do it right, you must create the directory /etc/dt/config, and copy the file there.

* As root type "/sbin/init.d/xlogin stop" to stop CDE.

* Edit the file "/var/X11/Xserver.conf" and add "-screen0" with your desired resolution. In this example it is "1280".

! you specify command line arguments here
args <
-pn
-screen0 1280
>

* Type "/sbin/init.d/xlogin start" to start CDE.
