I switched from nouveau to nvidia drivers. Recompiled system, changed use flags etc. My gpu was detected fine and everything installed fine. But now, For some reason, my fluxbox menu has gone retarded. I set the X server resolution to my desired value (1680x1050) in the xorg.conf, and also through nvidia-settings. Everything i open within an X enviroment is huge including the toolbar, like if its stuck on a low resolution. Except my desktop background and terminal seems to be at the desired resolution. Ideas?

On my ndivia notebooks i use the graphical nvidia provided tool. It is called nvidia-settings.

you may need to adjust your xorg.conf before you use the binary driver. therefore make a backup of that file and than search the net for examples. as this knowledge changed several times over the years I just recommend to search google for an appropriate setting.

you may also start with an empty configuration file again and use a template.

Most of these issues are usually solved with a from scratch config file
