Re: [vox-tech] jay and dselect

Not at that machine today, but it was (in general) as if , the resolution
was 600x800 but it expected my screen to be 50 inches.  Same ratios with the
other resolutions.

Don't know how to ask X for it's version number.

Which version of X are you using?  It makes a big difference.  You have to
set up 3.3.6 one way, and 4.0.1 (or 4.0.2) an entirely different way.

What does "Most don't display correctly" mean?  Please elucidate.  It sounds
as though you didn't limit the number of displays (there are quite a few
possible, and I doubt you need them all).

X can be touchy, but as of version 4, installation and setup are a lot
 not that tweaking isn't necessary.
