I don't know how to do that.  But here's perhaps the next-best thing:
they can type Ctrl+Alt+Plus or Ctrl+Alt+Minus to reduce or increase
the resolution, respectively -- assuming that you've listed more than
one resolution in the XF86Config-4 file.

Thanks for the suggestion. I tried doing it just now, but the trouble is when you reduce the resolution, it does not automatically resize the picture. Is there any way to fix this?

The tool "gvidm" might be of use to you.
