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'm using Ubuntu 12.04 on my Lenovo G575 (64 bit). I was using my computer with the 1366x768 display resolution. I changed the display resolution of my computer to the 800x600 yesterday, then I tried to return it back to 1366x768, but I couldn't. When I try to change resolution, it's getting dark and it crashes. Then nothing happens. So I need to restart to open my computer.
I'm currently running F11 and I have installed a F12 kvm virtual machine using virt-manager.
The installation completes but with the default configuration my F12 guest can't do any resolution higher to 1024x768 and I'd like too use my native resolution 1280x800.
