On my 8.10 Kubuntu install, when I leave X or reboot, the monitor resolution
comes back at 1152x864, too large for my screen, and it's shifted to the right
about 1/3 of a screen's worth. As soon as I go to the System Settings/Display,
it snaps back to 1024x768, properly positioned.
I went to /etc/X11/xorg.conf to adjust it, and found this (this is the whole
file, except for the comments):
> Section "Device"
> Identifier "Configured Video Device"
> Section "Monitor"
> Identifier "Configured Monitor"
> Section "Screen"
> Identifier "Default Screen"
> Monitor "Configured Monitor"
> Device "Configured Video Device"
Looks like Xorg is self-configuring nowadays, but can I change X to start up in
