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:
Identifier "Generic Monitor"
ModelName "Sony CPD-G400"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Device "Generic Video Card"
Monitor "Generic Monitor"
Modes "1600x1200" "1400x1050" "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600
Maybe I don't have to change anything. I'll give it a shot tomorrow.
