Just do it if you do resolutions larger than 1024x786. Your eyes will thank you for it.

A solution I use is to have a high resolution(1600x1200) a small font (8pt.) but a very clear font (verdana)

cheers

 Size: The right way!

I guess I shouldn't be surprised noone has mentioned this, since I only found out by chance, but I'm still surprised at how few people know:
Don't set your resolution based on what size you want things (like fonts, etc.) to appear, that's the Windows way: set your resolution to whatever your hardware can handle (gracefully) and then use the "DisplaySize" option in XF86Config; it goes in the "Monitor" section and should look something like this:
Section "Monitor"
Option "CalcAlgorithm" "IteratePrecisely"
HorizSync 30-95
Identifier "Monitor[0]"
ModelName "AutoDetected"
Option "DPMS"
VendorName "AutoDetected"
VertRefresh 58-75
UseModes "Modes[0]"
DisplaySize 308 228
EndSection

The above is for a Dell Latitude C800 (15.1" display), which I'm using at 1600x1200 without having to set font sizes higher, etc.
This option essentially tells X what your physical screen size really is which allows X to adjust a lot of things (fonts at the very least) to their proper dpi, so you get the best of both worlds: high resolution, normal-sized fonts. Of course not all programs respect this (acroread, cough), but in the ones that do you get the additional bonus of a 1:1 correlation with real world size, i.e. if you set zoom to 100% in Open Office the preview will be almost exactly the same size as a physical piece of paper laid over the screen.

enjoy!

 Werd 1400x1050 rulez

I run a Dell Inspiron 8000 portable with a 15" SXGA LCD. It's max res is 1400. Most ppl think it's too small to see, but I keep it there kuz I anything lower get's way too crowded for this multitasker. I wouln't want a higher res though unless my screen was larger than 15".

I too use 1152x864

It is because my 17" monitor will do 75Hz at 1152x864 but only 60 at 1280x1024. Plus I think it makes things just the right size.

The best resolution for older 17" monitors is 1152x864. My old Hansol monitor works at 75Hz at this resolution and I think it's much better to look at compared to 1024x768, which i think is a bit to big

Hi,

I agree that 1152 is the perfect resolution for a 17 inch monitor. However I run in 1280 because in 1152 my monitor will only run at 75 Hz (in 1280 it can do 85Hz).
Any idea how I could change this ?

I've got a iiyama Vision Master Pro 413 and an nForce graphics card.

Thanks in advance
Christophe

The kde-3.1-beta2 release date has been delayed by one week due to various reasons.
The schedule page should be updated ...

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
