Subject description: ...not working properly
 

I had the screen resolution initially set to 1280x1024.
I went to change it to 1024x768 using the xorg screen resolution wizard.
I had about 3 overlapping desktop screens and restarting X did not change to a normal 1024x768 desktop.
Also, the icon placement in both the desktop icons and the hotpup icons was wrong as icons were overlapping or not placed correctly.

You don't mention what version of Puppy you are using, what your video card is. I have experienced similar problems with Puppy 4/4.2 and a Radeon 9200se board. I was able to change resolution using the resolution changer in the Xorg wizard. I had to restart X a second time to get it running right after changing the res though.

The version of Puppy directly associates to this bug reporting area as the version is Puppy 4.2.1.
The computer is a Compaq AMD duel core with 3 megs of ram and I booted from the CD with pfix=ram.
At the bootup selection of xorgwizard, I picked xorg and a resolution of 1280x1024 24bit.
The trash and lock icons were stepped in like they had been made to be located for a 1024x768 resolution.
When I then selected the xorg submenu selection from the desktop and tried to change to 1024x768, I got 3 partial overlapping desktop screens and the cd icon in hotpup was overlapping the first hard drive icon.
If one opens /tmp/xerrs.log it will show errors with placement.
That is if I am interpreting the info correctly.
Oops, forgot! Video card (built in) is Nvidia GeFroce 6150 SE and monitor is Hanns G 199D.

The only other thing I can think of at the moment is to run
Code:
xrandr

in a terminal and see what it thinks the available resolutions are.

If 1024x768 is present, then try
Code:
xrandr -s 1024x768

to see if that gets you there. Once again, if the resolution does change, you may have to restart the Xserver a second time.
