So now that /etc/X11/xorg.conf isn't being used, where can I specify the display resolution, such as 800x600? I used to do it in a kickstart, but now I don't know where this setting is... [by jpeery]
I have an eee 901 (with its tiny screen) and just bought a separate LCD screen. I tried to set the screen resolution with gnome-display-properties, but the maximum in the drop-down menu is 800x600 pixel. How can I change this?
I checked the xorg.conf, but it is more or less empty.
i installed a minimal ubuntu os onto my ibook g3 and have since installed gnome and a few other things necessary. my problem is screen resolution. im stuck with 800x600 and have tried adding resolutions using xorg.conf file and with xrandr but i cant seem to get it to work.
I have an Acer P215H monitor that I've added as a dual monitor. It won't display any resolutions higher than 800x600 though. The display works perfectly fine in Windows. I've tried adding the resolution to xorg.conf based on the EDID information that I was able to get from a Windows program but it still refuses to display anything about 800x600.
I can't find a way to set my laptop's display below 1024x768 resolution. The Windows 8.1 'low resolution' mode (640x480) works, but that cannot really be used with multiple monitors etc. The laptop has integrated Intel and NVIDIA GPUs.
EDIT: Can't create custom resolution using Intel's drivers, because I need to use 800x600 as desktop resolution, not only on a specific application.
