Re: [opensuse] "X" config

For the DisplaySize would I add a line under "Monitor" like this?

Option DisplaySize 380 215

This is exactly where man pages suck, no examples to go by. What is the
saying?, "a picture is worth a thousand words".

DisplaySize is a workaround for defective EDID reading of the physical H & W dimensions in mm of the display, but it is also useful to force the DE to use a specific logical pixel density. Fonts tend to work best if density is either 96 DPI or a 25% (24/best) or 12.5% (12/good) increment multiple of 96 (e.g. 120, 144, 168, 108, 132...).

For your purpose of centering size and position I suspect DisplaySize is inapplicable as a solution. Something that might work is forcing refresh to 60 if it is using 75, or to 75 if it is using 60, assuming 75 is supported by the display. Otherwise, forcing a specific modeline different from what it defaults to might be necessary.
