Help needed with Xrandr!


Hello!

I need some help with xrandr commands!

xrander shows me only like 4 modelines,

i add my own mode using this

Code:
xrandr --newmode <modeline>
then
Code:
xrandr --addmode VGA-0 1152x864
then to put my mode i use
Code:
xrandr --output VGA-0 --mode 1152x864

And all this works fine, but when i restart my computer i have to do everything again! is there anyway to keep that settings in the xrandr?
why i lost my config anytime i restart my computer...

Thanks
REgards!
