Screen Resolution again
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 4, 2009
Please don't post links to other screen resolution threads and think you are helping me out- I've already searched them, printed out about 100pages of them, and I'm still having trouble.
First foremost- the biggest problem I'm having is that almost every thread I read goes something like this- "Oh, that's not a big problem, just 'sudo apt get unitall reconfigure xorg.conf etc. etc... add modelines config etc... etc.."
Jibberish...I'm an ubuntu idiot.
Ok- I'm building a new pc (I've that mentioned in some other posts), and I plan to go ubnunto on it. I understand and accept there'll be learning curve, I'm like in kindergarten, so it doesn't do any good to give me college level inormation. To get my feet wet, so I'm not completely out in the cold when I turn it on (maybe tonight!), I installed in on my work pc via wubi. So far, the screen resolution is stuck at 800x600 61hz settings. I'd like it to run 1920 x 1200 @ 60hz (what it is under windows).
Here's the specs-
[SOLVED] Screen Resolution in Ubuntu 11.04
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 4, 2011
With Windows 7, I can set my screen resolution to 1280x720, but how do I do this in Ubuntu 11.04? Under "Monitor Preferences" the only 16:9 setting in the drop-down window is 848 x 480, which makes everything on the screen much too large. The other three settings in the drop-down box are all 4:3. One of them is a higher resolution (1024 x 768) but since it's 4:3, everything is stretched sideways on my monitor.
Resolved: VMWare how to change screen resolution CentOS or Fedora guest
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 9, 2008
I just built a CentOS 5.2 VM using VMWare Workstation running on Ubuntu 7.10. I installed VMWare tools from the Workstation menu. However, I was stuck with 640x480 or 800x600 screen resolutions. I then built a Fedora 9 VM. It shows me higher resolutions however, it will not run at more than 800x600.
This has not been an issue with Ubuntu, Kubuntu or various Windows VMs I have built. After some researching I came across a post on the VMWare community. It asked 2 questions:
Did you install VMWare Tools? (yes I did)
Did you CONFIGURE VMWare Tools? (well, no I did not)
I ran the configuration script as root using the following command
[SOLVED] Display limited to 800x600 screen resolution on Ubuntu 9.04 on LG Flatron L1718S
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 3, 2010
Hie everyone! I'm vuelement. I'm a faithful user of Ubuntu Linux, especially 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope. I have a problem with my screen resolution on my LG Flatron L1718S. It's a 17 inch and its recommended resolution is 1280x1024.I was on this resolution all along until now. Now I'm limited to 800x600 resolution. Here's what happened. Before installing Ubuntu 9.04 on a friend's computer, I put in his Seagate 40 Gig hard drive into his Intel Celeron Box with a 2.93 GHz and 512MB ram. I then plugged my monitor into his system. Upon booting, I discovered that the hard drive had a very strange looking operating system called OS2 Warp...seemed like Black XP to me. On the desktop, the icons were so big and bloated,the mouse was frozen, there was so much eyecandy which demanded so much graphics resources. His graphics card is an onboard one, framebuffer. I then rebooted the machine, this time running the Ubuntu 9.04 live CD. Resolution still ok, with 1024x768 this time. I installed Ubuntu 9.04 a
Doom3 1.3.1 causing screen resolution change on Ubuntu 8.10
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 6, 2009
I have an intersting problem with Doom3. I installed it and when I play it, my screen resolution on my desktop (after I close doom3) changes to 1024x480 and becasue of that odd resolution I cannot change it under System->Preferences->Screen Resolution.
I am running Ubuntu 8.10 with an ATI Radeon 9550 (yes it will run it, abit slowly) with fglrx 9.01 drivers. I would have posted my xorg.conf but I'm at my schools net connection bc I don't have one at home.
Another thing. I cannot get it to change back to a normal resolution until i use:
[SOLVED] Fedora 16 Virtual Box Additions Screen resolution (new issue).
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 13, 2012
Hello, I'm having an issue with my Fedora 16 VM. I am currently preparing for my Linux + certification and am running a couple different Fedora VMs.
On my laptop, I am running Fedora 13 in Virtual Box. Once I initially installed it and installed guest additions, I had to us this solution to obtain my proper screen resolution.
Later on, at home, I went to install Fedora 16 (newest version) on my gaming desktop at home. Again, after installing the guest additions, I edited the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file to include my needed resolution (1600x900).
Once I change the configuration file and reboot, after fedora loads the kernel, before loading the GUI, I get several lines of error code (referencing Guest Additions) and the system halts and doesn't boot. I have tried several times and continue to get the same issue.
So the solution works in Fedora 13, but I can not get it to work in 16. Does anybody have any suggestions? Had this problem? I will post a screen shot in a moment.
[SOLVED] Screen resolution settings higher than 800x600 with Ubuntu 10.04 inside Virtual PC
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 3, 2010
This is my first posting as a Linux Newbie. I have installed Ubuntu 10.04 inside of a MS Virtual PC on my Vista machine. Everything seems to work beautifully and is stable. However, I would like to use a resolution higher than the current maximum of 800x600. I've poked around on the web and have tried various tips. I tried using the xrandr options which added a higher resolution mode, but when I would try to set the output to that resolution, I would get an error message to the effect that I could not exceed the current maximum of 800x600.
I tried to cobble parameter values together and create an xorg.conf file, but every iteration seems to produce a bunch of colorful vertical bars within my Virtual PC window, and I would have to blow away that virtual PC setup and rebuild it (along with reinstalling Ubuntu).
As I said, 800x600 is not a show stopper, but I would like to take advantage of the real estate I have with my display. These "fifty-five year old&q

Only provides 600x400 screen resolution

Originally tacked on teh end of someone else's post but now Bumping it.
I have loaded 9.04 Ubuntu onto a 3 yr old eMachines desktop (2.16Ghz intel chip) with VIA graphics chipset, and now it gives me two resolutions... 800x600 or 800x480. Now this isn't good enough, XP gave me up to 1280x...
Followed the Wikis and guides, I did the System > Adminstration > Display menu selection. It showed the dialogue box, but it was empty with the message 'no proprietary drivers installed'. No button or function at all to get a list (which apparently there should be). Yes I am on the internet as i am typing this! Where do I get a list of drivers to choose from? Is my install broken?
So if I cannot get a decent display then it has to be goodbye Linux and back to being a Micro$oft dupe. ALSO: In another thread someone suggested checking the 'Screens and Graphics menu' you refer to above? I didn't see one, please be totally specific about what things to clisk in 9.04 to reach it.
Now I als
