Fit desktop into 1.8"

Hello. Would someone help me with simply adjusting the resolution to 128x160 Pixels for my 1.8" LCD display. I can boot into the XWindow GUI interface but can only see a small portion. How do I adjust the resolution to fit the screen?
Thanks :)

Re: Please help me with my 1.8" LCD

I needed to know how to reverse (switch screens basically) so I did not enable fbcon on startup yet. So once I switch to LCD screen, how do I switch back to using composite video?

Re: Please help me with my 1.8" LCD

Yeah that's true. In that case, how do I rotate the screen horizontal to use the console?
I know it works vertical, but it would be nice to know.

Re: Please help me with my 1.8" LCD

Well really all I wanted was to use the LCD as a "Main screen." which I can by using to view the console, or viewing the desktop
( sudo FRAMEBUFFER=/dev/fb1 startx) But is there a way to resize the whole desktop? I can only see a small part. Can I adjust the resolution?

Re: Please help me with my 1.8" LCD

Thank you so very much for that image. I followed all the instructions but did not set up the game because I do not have the buttons. So now that I have that, how to I use the screen to view the boot up process and use it as the normal screen?

Re: Please help me with my 1.8" LCD

Which one is the image? There are 19 files and they are not downloads. They are all code.
Do I build the image on the RPi?
