RHEL WS: How can I improved the quality of the display & fonts.
Posted on 2004-08-16
I just installed Redhat Linux Enterprise Workstation Edition onto my Dell laptop. Currently, the display is set to 640x480. I try to change it to 1024x768 to make everything smaller. Linux then prompts me that the display changed, and that I need to log out, and restart the X server. I do this but the resolution is still 640x480 (!!). What do I need to do to get 1024x768?
Also, when I open a TERMINAL (a basic shell) the fonts seem to be fuzzy -- it's not a clear/clean screen to look at...the problem gets even worse when I make the fonts smaller so that I can see more information without having it wrap around to the next lines. I remember seeing some font error messages when I installed Linux...something to the effect "...font not initialized...".
Thanks for any time & help. It is highly appreciated.
