Default F9/KDE4: Can't access screen resolution changes after software install

Based upon a mention in Linux Journal, I installed the Penumbra: Black
Plague demo yesterday on my laptop:


Acer TravelMate 4202WLMi
Inten Centrino Duo 1.66GHz
1 GB RAM
Intel GMA950, 1280x800
Fedora 9 x86
(hpl.log attached)
KDE4

At the end of the installation, there were no errors, though it seemed
to restart X on my machine. After logging in again, I tried starting the
demo just to see that it was working. When I exited it, I found that my
desktop had been changed to 800x600. I had hoped that restarting X would
reset my settings, but that didn't help. Nor did changing the settings
in the game itself.


I am unable to reconfigure my desktop at all. While the correct
(1280x800) resolution is visible as a selection in System Settings, the
Apply/Save button is not enabled. This appears to be a specific problem
in KDE; I can restart X and use another environment (Gnome) at the
correct resolution. Likewise ICEwm; in ICEwm I can even start and run
the game without issue and return to my proper desktop size.


What is particularly odd is that when logging in via KDE it *starts up*
in the correct resolution, but eventually changes. What happened to my
machine, and how do I get it back? It's probably just a configuration
change in one file, but I don't know which one.


Thanks in advance,
-Don

Where did you get Penumbra from? I'd suggest asking them what the installer
did you your machine.
