RE: Linux Presentation Software
One of the problems I have run into is getting X to synchronize up with an
LCD projector. I use a Dell Laptop with an LCD resolution of 1400x1050
pixels. In order to sync with a typical LCD projector, you need to knock
that down to 1024 x 768, typically, and depending on the projector, you may
or may not be able to get it to display the screen when running X on your
So, its back to the old "boot windows and hope nobody notices" trick and
set the screen resolution there. This has worked every time.
So its not just the presentation software that keeps us from using native
Linux tools, even if we wanted too.
Anyone have a solution to the above problem?
