Thanks for answering. However, problem is diffrérent there: xrandr works
and krandtray does not work. The thruth is that xrandr does display the
Mhz garbled :
SZ: Pixels Physical Refresh
*0 1280 x 1024 ( 342mm x 272mm ) *-19557
1 1400 x 1050 ( 342mm x 272mm ) -19557
Current rotation - normal
Current reflection - none
Rotations possible - normal
Reflections possible - none
But at least if I do :
xrandr -S [0/1] it works and does change the resolution.
Note that it is a dual head setting with mergefb option set. When I use
the same config on single head, the MHz option are correctly displayed.
