Adjust login screen resolution

Postby runbei on Tue Feb 15, 2011 1:42 am

LMDE displays the correct resolution for my monitor, but the login screen is an ugly low resolution (something like 1024x768 ? on a 22" monitor). Is there a way to increase it?

Thanks. Startupmanager lets you adjust resolution for the grub screen but not the login screen - alas.
