How to use Ubuntu 10.04 with 1920x1080 monitor?


I am trying to use a Viewsonic VX2450WM-LED with Ubuntu 10.04 but 1920x1080 is not one of the available choices in Monitor Preferences. The monitor is usable but distorted (stretched) with the 1280x1024 setting. The host is an HP Pavilion p7-1120 with Intel HD Graphics. Is there a way to make Ubuntu 10.04 work correctly with a 1920x1080 monitor?

It may be that 10.04 doesn't come with the drivers for Intel HD out of the box, just because it is already somewhat older. It may help to install newer drivers. Install a newer kernel and/or the drivers from the xorg-edgers PPA.
