Thread: Couple of annoying issues..

  1. Couple of annoying issues..

    I finished my migration last nigh, almost everything seems to work well,
    except:
    1. When I try to add software, I am always told that one of my disks is
    almost out of space, although no partition is more then 25% full.
    2. I am on 1440x990 resolution, and sometimes my session opens as if I am
    on 1024 x 768. Only a reboot will fix that.
    3. When it opens on 1440 x 990, some windows will open only at 1024 x 768
    and I cannot expand them.

    Other then that I am fine, I find 10.3 to be a little more stable the
    Ubuntu 7.10, especially in the video / Java / Plugins area withing
    Firefox.

    TIA.

    To make it even more puzzeling, sax2 shows 1440 x 990, while control
    panel shows 1024 x 768..

    Are you using the stable or "latest" KDE repositories? I've since backed
    away from the experimental stuff for that exact reason... (using NVidia
    here)

    I use gnome, and no experimental repos.

    Try setting both to 1440x768. If you've installed nVidia drivers for an
    nVidia card use nvidia-settings for setting your resolution. Aticonfig
    is the other 3rd party video setting.
