I am a complete noob with Linux and DSL, so be patient with me.
I just purchased a Fanless Barebones Mini-ITX from DSL. I popped in 1gb and John put in the IDE Disk On Module with DSL. I bought it because I wanted a completely silent machine for three purposes (in order by my priorities).
1) Use to control a Windows machine via RDP. Here is where I failed, more about that later.
2) Use to control a different Window machine using VNC. No problem, that worked great.
3) As a "silent" internet appliance. Again, no problem, that worked great.
So, here is my problem. I need to be able to use Rdesktop at 1024 x 768 video resolution. I can't seem to make that happen. I can link and control using Rdesktop, but it always appears in 800x600 resolution. That just isn't sufficient for my needs. The program I must control requires 1024 x 768
I have searched these forums and found this question addressed a few times. However, none of those threads have really indicated sucess. And, every example I have tried has failed to modify the resolution.
Should this work?
I have tried "rdesktop -g 1024x768" and "rdesktop -f" to no avail.
Thanks for any assistance.
