I did searched google a bit, and I found an explanation of how to control the width of the columns: \begin{longtable}{p{2cm} p{3.5cm} p{3.5cm}} ... \end{longtable} worked at last after some trying. I don't know if you need to, but I kept \usepackage{tabularx}. I couldn't figure out how to center the columns, though, but in my case I do not need to, so default-left is alright.
