Package: xfce4-mcs-manager
Version: 4.2.2-1
Severity: important

I've been using xfce4.2 (from an unofficial source) for a few months and
when 4.2 entered sid recently, I removed the unofficial source from

After upgrading to the 'sid' version, my default resolution of 1280 X
800 disappeared and all I seem to have is 1280x960 which on a widescreen
laptop is inconvenient at best and renders the menu inaccessible at
worst.  Also the Rt Click on the desktop to pull up a menu is either
disabled or broken.

To compound matters if I go to XFCE Settings Manager and click display,
the display preferences box appears and Gamma correction controls look
normal but the Resolution box is a narrow, vertical empty box.

Simon suggested it is to do with the DPI set at 96 and I had a dig
around the conf files but without success.

Any pointers would be appreciated.
