Position of Login Window Solaris 9

Position of Login Window Solaris 9

Position of Login Window Solaris 9

(OP)
Greetings! I'm new here and excited to get aquianted with this site! Seems like a good source of knowledge!

Anyways, my first problem de'jour deals with the following....

We have dual monitors(top/bottom) for our system. The problem is that the solaris login window is split between the top and bottom screens.

I would assume that I could change the position of the login window in the dtlogin file? However, for the life of me, I can't figure out the calls/parameters that need to be set and/or if it's even possible to do this in the dtlogin file or anywhere else for that matter?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

unknown :root: [4284]-> fbconfig -dev pfb0 -doublewide disable
unknown :root: [4285]-> fbconfig -dev pfb0a -doublewide disable
unknown :root: [4286]-> fbconfig -dev pfb0b -doublewide disable

This fixed the screen resolution issue with the left half of the screen showing
on the whole monitor and the right half of screen not on monitor at all.

Alright, so I found the fix.

Go to /etc/dt/config/C or whatever dir you use to configure Xresources (which is defined in the Xconfig file).
Open the Xresources file and to move the entire login screen vertically or horizontally use the "Dtlogin*matte.y: N" or "Dtlogin*matte.x N" where N is the number of pixels from the top to bottom or left to right.

Thanks again for all your help
