Hello, Joe,

I also noticed problems with the new release of E17 at my 32bit Arch. It
seems, that there was some change upstream that broke compatibility with older
themes/backgrounds/icons, so that they are listed in selections dialogs, but
are not loaded. Rebuilding the e17-backgrounds, e17-icons and e17-themes
packages from the AUR partially solves the problem, as more
themes/backgrounds/icons can now be loaded, some still remains broken though.
I've also seen the resolution being reset to default, but in my case the
switch to desired one was flawless and logout succeeded (OSS ati drivers).

Hope, this will be of some help,
regards, Nicky

This reminds me I did change screen resolution via an autorun script on E17
some time ago (when E17's resolution control showed only the default screen
resolution).

I can't find the script now, but simply running "xrandr -s 1024x768" from
terminal inside od E17 changes the resolution correctly. Running just "xrandr"
should give you the list of supported resolution, if the desired one is not
listed you have to add a modeline. When you have the correct xrandr call(s)
tested, you can automate it by creating say change-resolution.sh (should go in
your PATH I think):
#!/bin/sh
xrandr -s ...

which you then set up to autorun in control center -- aplications --
aplication on start (hope I translated it correctly from my localization).

Regards,
Nicky
