    You may find that antiX does not boot to the desktop with a resolution you prefer.
    Here is a way to set your chosen screen resolution and make it ‘stick’ after reboot.

    1) Open Set Screen Resolution via the control centre or menu. This opens an application called arandr.
    2) Right click on the [LVDS-1] box -> Resolution -> and select the resolution of your choice.
    3. Layout -> Save As (Choose a suitable name and location. I suggest screen_resolution and save in /usr/local/bin).
    4. Select the menu Layout and choose Apply and close arandr
    5. Open a root terminal and type

    chmod 755 /usr/local/bin/

    6. In Control Centre -> Session -> User Desktop Session -> Startup tab , add this line at the bottom. &

    7. Reboot
    8. At desktop you might need to turn conky off and on

    Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.

    antiX with runit - leaner and meaner.
