monitor resolution wierdness

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

 



Hi all;

I have a Dell M6400 and an Nvidia card.

I'm running Fedora 10.

My laptop monitor is a 1920x1200 - I also have an external monitor- an Acer 
X243w that is also 1920x1200

I've used nvidia-settings to configure the second monitor via Twinview


When I plug the external monitor into my vga out before I boot the laptop then 
the screens are beautiful, a font size that I expect from a 1920x1200 monitor 
on both screens.

The system font defaults are fine (most of em are a font size of 9

However if I boot the laptop without the external monitor then the fonts are 
much larger, in order to have a similar look I need to go into the KDE system 
settings  --> appearance --> Fonts and change them all to 7, and a few (small, 
toolbar) to 6.  Even then my firefox fonts are bigger than I like and I have to 
use custom settings for Kmail.

I'm unclear why I get different fonts when I'm connected to the external 
monitor. 

Thoughts?

Thanks in advance...
