Re: suggested fix by Mark for :- Kde (3.1.3) desktop does not resize to match the screen when changed in portrait mode.



Many many thanks Mark :o) :o) :o)

I have tried this so many times, and it has never worked...

I was putting the option "Randr" "false" in the driver section underneath the
line "Rotate" "ccw", so when I moved it to the "ServerFlags" section it worked
exactly how it should! :o)

I feel so stupid now - I must have mis-read the documentation about 100 times +
to miss that.

You dont happen to know the best way to allow me to be able to quickly switch
between accelerated mode (using the NVIDIA driver) and the portrait mode (using
the NV driver) is do you?

The only way I can think of is to have 2 copies of the XF86Config-4 file, and
to copy the correct one in place (perhaps using a script), logout, and restart
the Xserver.

Many thanks
