Zarfy is a nice gtk gui for changing your screen resolution. Works well with multiple monitor setups.

Edit: I uploaded a stripped version as disciple suggested.

That looks like a nice find.
Requires gio - someone might like to post a link to the best package for that...

Also jemimah, it is good if you can make sure programs and libraries are stripped before packaging them. If I go to /usr/bin and run `strip zarfy` it shrinks from 283 KB to to 39 KB. If I then compressed it with `upx zarfy` it would get even smaller (you can find upx on the forum).
N.B. when I upx things I say that I have done so, as it may be a good idea for people to un-upx them if they're putting them in an .sfs or a remastered CD.
To strip libraries you need to use `strip --strip-unneeded some_library.so`; without the --strip-unneeded option it would break the library.

Ah, I think gio is included in recent versions of glib, so one would have to update that or install Puppy 4.3 (is that what you have jemimah?) to get it.

Thanks for the pointers. I did only test it on 4.3. I will strip it and repost it when I get a chance.

Jemimah man, you're just so awesome! You've been going around solving all my problems Smile

First there was Pwireless2, I always wanted my wireless to connect automatically, then there was Icewm for 4.3.1, and now this...

You're so awesome! Thanks so much! Screen extension is something I've never been able to pull off no matter how many times I mess is xorg.conf and Xinerama, but you've solved it for me with one simple pet with gui! Thanks man, you rock!

A slightly exuberant, but extraordinarily thankful,
Battleshooter Smile

Actually I do know Smile I say "man" kinda like a surfer thing or whatever, it's just how I talk Smile I was gonna write an explanation of this but I thought that if you made comment I would then explain myself better Smile

That aside, the point is, I'm very grateful Smile

BTW, I'm female too, don't know how many people know though.

It was until last week - I've replaced it with Grandr.

Grandr is less buggy, and more intuitive, but it requires Gconf.

Any chance of you releasing a Grandr pet with whatever deps it needs?

I ended up scrapping Grandr because it crashed when I connected my monitor. I am using LxRandr now. I think Igulider just posted a pet of it.
