I'm a lot more unhappy with leaving out the ability to do that. If

need the tool.


from the CLI (since no X)

X -configure

The problem is that there are ten screens of command line options to be understood, and it gets some of its information by probing, rather than user input. Much of the information, such as that needed to use --layout, is in the xorg.conf man page, which makes for a painful process figuring out what options are needed just to generate xorg.conf with the right stanzas to edit.

If there is a way to use bugzilla without X for a browser, I bet fewer
than 1% of all users know what it is. And not everyone has a second
system to use.


I'm not just making a point here, but I think you need an entry in
xorg.conf. I haven't done that since about X11R5 or so, but I think the
option was something like "ViewPort" which was the physical (display)
window size. I could be misremembering, that might be the virtual size,
but it gives you somewhere to look. Do let us know if you find it.
