Re: The 800x600 resolution issue with Mint 7

My issue is not 800x600, it's 1024x768. However, my monitor's native resolution is 1440x900. I don't see a way to set it to that resolution. @Husse: 1.

I have read all the posts, and I understand much better what's going on. But I have a question about hidden folders. Can I make a separate partition for the hidden " .mozilla-thunderbird " folder? Every time I have to install/reinstall a linux distro, I copy the contents of this folder (I ...
