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

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

I got it from the publisher
(http://www.penumbrablackplague.com/site/index.php). I've also posted
on their forum, but thought that this might also be a more general
question on how to (mis)configure KDE4.

As a followup:
If anyone knows how to simply revert to the default KDE configuration
(deleting a config file or directory, for example) that would be useful too.

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

I had a similar problem after trying a new video driver - resolution
stuck as 600 x 800 and not able to change to a higher resolution from
the display setting utility in kde.

To get your x settings back you can shut down x with "telinit 3", then
log in as root at the command line (not an xterm). Next you run "Xorg
--configure" which will generate a new xorg.conf file in the current
directory which you must copy to "/etc/X11/xorg.conf" (see "man
Xorg"). Finally restart x by "telinit 5".


If you still need to reset your kde settings rename the .kde directory
in your home and then re login ensuring you specify a kde session.

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
