Hi all VL users
I am an enthusiastic user of VL 5.8 SOHO. I have been using successively RC1, 2, and 3,
and was eager to install VL 5.8 SOHO final. I could do it this afternoon, and I immediately
faced the following new problem:
At first boot (in graphic mode), the complete screen picture is shifted 3 cm left, with a
black vertical bar at the right side; the K menu icon, pushed outside of the screen, is not
accessible, as well as the left-side column of icons of the desktop, etc...
I found a PROVISIONAL cure by opening a console (as an ordinary user) and typing
the command "kcontrol": the KDE control center opens a window. Then, clicking on
peripherals > display I discovered that the screen size was (wrongly) 1400x1050,
in place of the 1280x1024 that I choose during the installation (hence: this is a new bug
to correct in the installation program, since the previous versions of VL5.8 did not
suffer this symptom). Selecting 1280x1024 gives back a normal screen aspect.
The problem is that this has to be done again at each reboot !
(Even though I marked the square "apply settings on KDE startup")
Does someone know what to do to make this correction permanent ?
Technical data: screen Hyunday B71A (1280x1024)
Graphic card: ATI
Driver selected during installation: ATI (I tried FGLRX and radeon: error messages and
could only boot in console)
