Chapter 32. X Window System Configuration

32.1. Display Settings
32.2. Display Hardware Settings
32.3. Dual Head Display Settings

During installation, the system's monitor, video card, and display settings are configured. To change any of these settings after installation, use the X Configuration Tool.

To start the X Configuration Tool, go to System (on the panel) => Administration => Display, or type the command system-config-display at a shell prompt (for example, in an XTerm or GNOME terminal). If the X Window System is not running, a small version of X is started to run the program.

After changing any of the settings, log out of the graphical desktop and log back in to enable the changes.
