I am totally baffled.

I cannot understand WHAT makes my xorg/KDE appearance change apparently
randomly from times to tiem.

I mean, boot with the same kernel, same GRUB line, same xorg, same
xorg.conf, same framebuffer and I get two different cases of which I am
appending the debug info I could think of.

In one case the fonts appear very small, KPDF shows ugly fonts and the
external projector works.

In the other case I see nice larger fonts in konsole and KPDF but the
external projector only shows a small viewport of my entire desktop.

Could anyone please tell me what other info should I try analyzing to
understand the difference ?

TIA,
Bob
