I am using a netbook with a 10.1 inch screen and resolution 1024x600. I am running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and when using the neural network toolbox from Matlab a window is off the screen and I cannot access the buttons. I found this answer on SuperUser link, which describes two approaches. First to press alt while moving the window off the screen upwards so that the bottom part is visible and accessible. The next option is to add to the xorg.conf file
There was no such file in /etc/X11/ so I created it and there were problems at reboot so the default was used. Is there a solution along these lines for Ubuntu?
I suspect that there might be a solution using xrandr.
