A few days ago I asked for ideas on how to change the screen resolution of
sunray attached screens. (The pixels on screen not the size of the
X-Server image)

I got a few replied suggesting that I should use utxsettings but
this only changes the size of the xserver image and not the
resolution and refresh time of the screen attached to the SunRay.

The only promising mail I got was

I'm not sure but maybe your looking for something like:
/var/opt/SUNWut/preferences (SunRay 1.1)
There's a DEFAULT file with several settings and under
/var/opt/SUNWut/preferences/ZeroAdmin/xx/pseudo  (SunRa 1.1) you
put in files named after the Ethernet-number of the ray, settings
for this
certain ray.

Sorry if I misunderstood you question...


Unfortunately I could not find any reference to this in the SunRay
1.2 System.

And I also got this:

Funny you should ask this. I spent quite a while on the phone to
Sun Support trying to resolve this question. Ultimately, they told
me "wait for the next version of sunray server software .. maybe we
will take care of it then...".

I've been unable to find any kind of workaround.  Hence our setup
is to use only "nice" monitors on our Sunray units (either
higher-quality 17" monitors that perform fine @ 1280x1024 with
reasonably high refresh rates - or - we use decent quality 19"
monitors for which 1280x1024 is the "norm"). Trying to use a 15" or
14" monitor on a sunray is really .. a hassle .. I've found.

However: If you do learn of a solution .. I'll be delighted to hear
about it! :-)

Sad isn't it ?
