Ubuntu's Monitor Preferences tool (listed as Monitors in the Dash) is able to orient the screen Left, Right, Normal or Upside Down, but is there a tool that can rotate the screen just a little? My CRT's screen is rotated perhaps 2° counterclockwise and I was wondering if this is something I can fix with software. This monitor (a GVC MPR II) doesn't appear to have user serviceable settings to fix the problem.

I'm using an ATI Radeon graphics card and the proprietary drivers, if that matters. I looked for a setting to adjust in ATI Catalyst Control, without success.

Edit: I found a tiny adjustment knob on the bottom of the back of the monitor and was able to solve the problem.

I don't think you can fix this problem via some software setting - for one thing, rotating the screen "just a little" would require quite a bit of processing power - and it still would be a picture rotated inside the skewed rectangle your monitor displays - hope you see what I'm trying to say.

In other words, it's most likely an electrical problem which can only be fixed by adjusting some pots inside the monitor, not via software.
