how to configure the widescreen of a thinkpad Edge 15.6" on kubuntu 9.0 evtl. 10.04


Hi masters of the universe!!!

I just bought a Lenovo edge 15.6". I installed kubuntu 9.10 (must be done in "safe graphic mode").
The display's resolution is 1366 x 768, and I can't get to configure it.
Would it be easier if I wait and install Kubuntu 10.04?

Tkx!

This is probably related to your graphics chip. You will probably get some specific help if you can tell the forum what it is. Please post the output of:

Code:
lspci | grep -i vga

Ok, sorry, i was wrong. After instaling in Safe Graphic Mode (SGM)I could see the graphic interface, although enlarged due to widescreen resolution. But after rebooting, I could not see the X anymore.

I instaled a kubuntu 9.10-64b (tought so, couse the laptop comes with a wincrap7-64b) with a Intel core i3

How can fix this from the instalation? or should i wait for the kubuntu 10.04?
