I'm using Mint 4 KDE CE on both my laptop & may main desktop & am very happy. The best distro I've tried by a long chalk! Huge thanks to Clem & everyone.
I'm still dual booting my Toshiba Tecra A3X with Win XP because of hardware peripheral issues. A big step for me would be if I could get my data projector to display the correct screen size. It's an Infocus LP120.
I have experimented with Fn F5 which seems to work Ok & on my laptop display I see the usual 1024x768, but a big vertical section at the left hand end of the projected desktop is missing. Reading the forums eg Ubuntu, I've experimented with xorg.conf without success, usually I end up restoring the backup.
I also looked in the System Settings-Peripherals- Monitor & Display dialogue but notice that if I select "Second Screen" the maximum size available on the slider is 800 by 600.
Here's the appropriate section of my xorg.conf, you can see that the graphics card is a Intel Corporation Mobile 915GM/GMS/910GML Express Graphics Controller
Identifier "Intel Corporation Mobile 915GM/GMS/910GML Express Graphics Controller"
Identifier "Generic Monitor"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Device "Intel Corporation Mobile 915GM/GMS/910GML Express Graphics Controller"
Monitor "Generic Monitor"
Identifier "Default Layout"
Screen "Default Screen"
InputDevice "Generic Keyboard"
InputDevice "Configured Mouse"
I'd appreciate any help with this, it would be a big step towards finally ditching Windows for good.
Can I also add another question - can anyone recommend webcams that will work with Mint? My Creative Vf0070 doesn't seem to be compatible.
Thanks & best wishes
