Smile Resolution issues after Installing Oneiric Ocelot and Gnome shell


Hi Everyone,
This is my first post, hope it would be clear enough!
I find my resolution really poor, the image is blurry and the files on the desktop look bigger.
This has started after I have installed ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot, then installed Gnome shell through the terminal (sudo apt-get install gnome-shell), as well as going into the System Settings -> Additional Drivers to get to accelerate the graphics driver.
I have checked my resolution through System Settings -> Displays, and it says it is at 1280x1024(5:4). It is also the maximum available. I am pretty sure I was at something higher previously.
My graphic card is Nvidia Corporation G92 [GeForce9600 650](rev a2)
My driver is VESA: G92 Board - c1722

What can I do?

Thanks!

Hi mchenier,
Thnks for helping! So i did checked, i had some difficulties cause to check the driver from GeForce.com, you need java and it took me some time to manage to put it on the computer.
Now i have a file called "NVIDIA-Linux-x86-280.13.run" on my desktop, do you know how to run it?
Big thnks!

Gah...dont do a manual install of the nVidia drivers with unbuntu, its harder and can cause problems. If you want to install the nVidia drivers with ubuntu, use jockey.

Sorry, I have no idea where in the menus jockey would be with ubuntu 11.10, with unity or gnome3.

You'll find the way to install here. But if you search Google with ''nvidia driver ubuntu 11.10'' you'll find some ways to install via PPA.
