# Concerning X

Does anyone have the problem where the last 4 or 5 mm on the left hand side of the screen appears on the right side? X has always done this to me even now when I have KDE. If you have this problem and have fixed it or if you just know how to fix it, please tell me.

Hmm, I had a problem such as this when I used a really old monitor for my computer... perhaps try a lower resolution and see if that fixes it.

I have tried multiple resolutions and the monitor is an NEC Multisync 3FGe, which I am guessing is about 3 years old, realistically.

Have you tried xvidtune? I think that can be used to position X properly on the monitor.

xvidtune? I''ve never heard of it. Is it something I need to download? Or do I already have it?

To find out if you have an application installed, type
which <app_name>

If it is available, it will return the path to the executable.

If you have an RPM-based installation (RedHat, Mandrake, SuSE, etc), you can also query the RPM database (assuming the app was built/installed from RPMs):
rpm -q <app_name>

I''m sure it''s also possible to query Debian (through apt), though I''m sure you don''t run Deb.

Thanks to Kylotan for the idea!

OK, I tried playing with xvidtune (cautiously, the warning at the beginning kept me from going willy nilly) and I wasn''t able to fix the problem. Maybe its just the video card?
