I have just installed Ubuntu Dapper and tried to install the NVIDIA drivers by following method 1 of the guide located at http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Dapper
but the screen resolution is wrong. I have an advent 7093 laptop, with a widescreen display, but it is being detected as 1024x768. With the NVIDIA drivers installed, it stretches the desktop to fit the display, which means everything looks "fat."
How can I have my screen detected correctly? Or, can I change my xorg.conf to include the correct resolution of 1200x800?
I'm using gnome at the moment, but have kde installed as well. Before Ubuntu I had OpenSuse 10.1, which worked fine after installing the drivers manually from the download on the nvidia site.
