Xconfigurator

Xconfigurator is a stand alone program that you can run at any time to configure the X-Window. It is important to know how to run this program because it allows you to alter your video settings. Many times when you first load a distro by default it uses the highest resolution available, creating a screen that is difficult to read. Xconfigurator allows you to change that to the setting you choose.

Be warned that Xconfigurator may freeze your system. When you run it this warning will be listed. Then the next window that appears has a brief detailed description of

the Xconfigurator program. Click "Ok" to start the program. You will then view several windows contain monitor, video, and clockchip options in step to setting your screen resolution. Finally, you are allowed to choose your video resolution.
