For some reason, whenever I run an older app (55/5600) started from the Application menu, the resolution gets all jacked up. It looks like it's 'zoomed in' and everything is pixelated.

Now, I know that some of this is to be expected due to the higher resolution on the 6000, but I think I'm seeing a resolution that's even below what it would be on a 55/5600.

For instance, I recently installed Gaim. If I start it from the App menu, everything is 'zoomed in' -- so much so that the 'Add Account' button isn't even on the screen (and thus not clickable). I found a temporary workaround by starting from the console (that appears to keep it in the high resolution mode), but as soon as I switch away to a different program and come back, the resolution is 'zoomed in' again.

I believe this is happening in just about every older program I've tried to run. And unfortunately, I think it's making a number of programs unusable by hiding menu options, or entire window segments.

Am I totally missing some simple setting?

D'oh!!

Got it working.. for anyone else having this problem, turn off 'Magnifed' mode for the program in question: Press and hold the stylus on a program icon, and uncheck the appropriate checkbox.

For some reason it appears that 'Magnified' mode is the default that everything has been installed with.

Anyone know the purpose of running something magnified?

some older programs will not run with 640x480, but will run the lower resolution magnified mode.
