Newbie asking X-windows questions
Posted on 2000-02-14
I'm fairly new to Linux and have experimented with several of the windows managers that come with Redhat 5.0. I am very eager to use Linux and X-Windows, but I'm finding that there are 2 problems that I can't seem to shake.
1.) I've set my machine up to run Windows 95 and Redhat Linux. When I start my X-Windows session, the monitor controls must be readjusted to make the viewable screen area look normal again. This can be quite a hassle. There must be some way to do this whithout readjusting my monitor controls.
2.) The mouse movement I'm used to in Windows 95 and Unix (Mosaic I think) is very smooth and easy to adjust. When I'm in my X-windows session, I find that the mouse movements lack the same "smoothness" (for lack of a better word). Is there a better way to control mouse properties that by using the "Fast, Next Fastest, Fastest" command in X-Windows?
