How to adjust horizontal screen position
for testing (and fun) I have a system with three Linux distributions
installed in parallel: Debian Etch, Debian Lenny, and Ubuntu 8.10.
Everything works fine, but there is one small nuisance: The horizontal
position of the screen display changes between distributions. E.g., when
I switch from Debian to Ubuntu, I have to use the position controls of
the CRT monitor to shift the display contents to the left.
The screen resolution is the same in all three installations
(1280x1024). I looked at /etc/X11/xorg.conf but didn't see any dramatic
differences. Also, the Ubuntu Wiki says, that in 8.10 xorg.conf isn't
consulted that much anymore because most the information is collected by
How can I configure the installations so the horizontal screen position
is the same with all of them?
Thanks in advance,
