Hello. I am new to linux and this forum.
I just installed Fedora 14 and was using Ubuntu 10.10 earlier.
After installing Fedora 14, the whole desktop looks stretched out. What should I do to get it back to normal?
Please help.

Try changing your resolution:

System --> Preferences --> Monitors

Re: Newbie

Hm is it a resolution problem of your monitor? If it is the xrandr or configuration of xorg.conf file could help maybe. You better try the command xrandr first. Usually a xorg.conf file is not needed.

Here is a thread about such issues. Not sure if it will help in your case, I only read the last post of this linked thread.
