    i got a problem...
    since i change the resolution in /etc/X11/XF86Config, it was a readonly file then i change the chmod as i can write on it. But after i edit this file and restart the X, it just nothing has been changed. This file still readonly and the changes i made is just nonsense...
    what should i do... :confused:

    First of all welcome to go4expert.

    There can be two options of what is going wrong. Now as you changed the properties to a file

    First thing can be did you login the second time with the same user
    Second thing is you need to change the property by the owner of that file user.

    Normally you login as root and then change the chmod of that file so that all user can write and then try making changes.

    Hope it helped.
    Thanks
