I'm running LMDE 64bits in my notebook, using MATE and almost everything "default" - ask me if you think it's important to check *anything*, but don't remember changing nothing "important" like the window manager, or those.
A couple weeks ago I've tried running Commandos: Beyond the enemy lines, a Windows game from 1998, I think, under Crossover Office. While it was starting, screen resolution changed (it's a full screen game, as most of them), and then it seemed to hang or something like that, so I killed the game.
The problem is, after that, the resolution didn't restore to the original 1366x768 - it stayed at 800x600.
I thoght restarting the X server would do the trick, but nope - every time I log in, the resolution is at 800x600.
If I log in with another user (or even before login, while the boot messages are shown, or the login window - ¿mdm?), the resolution is OK at 1366x768. Even after login, I run "xrandr --output LVDS1 --mode 1366x768" and the resolution applies OK. But whenever I close the session and log in again, the resolution is at 800x600.
I've made some attempts of grep'ing all my home directory looking for a "800" string, but, well... it's not very happy to do that
Does anyone know where that "800x600" default is saved? Any idea of how to get it back to the 1366x768 resolution?
Someone suggested me to make the xrandr line run automatically on login, but it's too much patchy - I think it even makes troubles with the position of buttons and applets in the mate panel.
I read about creating a xorg conf file, but I don't really know where to put it, nor how to write one. Still seems patchy, also - I think I'd have to *delete or modify* some file/place where that 800x600 overrides the "natural default" of 1366x768 - but seems less horrible than scripting a xrandr command.
Any advise you could give me, I'll be very thankful.
