I can definitely center that way with this monitor (Sony Trinitron CPD-G400), although I don't know how or if it will remember the settings for different setups. I don't quite understand whether I have to declare a different refresh rate for each resolution in order for this to work. At the moment, I only have this in xorg.conf: Section "Monitor" Identifier "Generic Monitor" ModelName "Sony CPD-G400" Option "DPMS" HorizSync 30-107 VertRefresh 48-120 EndSection Section "Screen" Identifier "Default Screen" Device "Generic Video Card" Monitor "Generic Monitor" DefaultDepth 16 SubSection "Display" Depth 16 Modes "1600x1200" "1400x1050" "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600 EndSubSection EndSection Maybe I don't have to change anything. I'll give it a shot tomorrow. Thanks.
