I apologize, I'm new to Linux so please cut me some slack. I've tried all day to solve my problem on my own but every time I feel like I've finally made some progress I run into another road block. So, I have a Late 2011 model 11" Macbook Air that I have just installed Ubuntu 12.04 on via Parallels (the latest version). The native screen resolution on the 11" air is 1366x768, which is not an option for the resolution presets. I can run other resolutions for nowbut it needs to be fized eventually. So, I looked around and discovered xrandr and the newmode, addmode, etc. However, whenever I do any of this I eventually end up with the "Failed to get size of gamma for output default"
I read this article
as well as a few others and they suggest that the monitor is not supplying xrandr with the information it needs and therefore I should maually edit the xorg.conf file. However, I had no success locating such a file and have since learned that it no longer exists in Ubuntu. Then I searched for a way to create one manually and came across this article
which didn't help me much either. I just got
Fatal server error:
Server is already active for display 0
If this server is no longer running, remove /tmp/.X0-lock
and start again.
So, my question is what now? All I want to do is set up a resolution of 1366x768!
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Turns out I didn't have Parallels Tools installed.....
