Stuck at 800x600 or Lower in Xubuntu Hardy with NVidia GX-400 and PanaSync S50 Monito
I love running Linux, but this issue is driving me *mad*! I cannot get the screen resolution higher than 800x600. I've never had luck with NVidia drivers or Envy, but have been able to resolve this in the past using the dpkg-reconfigure xserver-org command (or xserver-xorg, I've tried both).
Stinky XP lets me run at 1024x768 without a hitch, and that's really all I want. I'm not greedy, I just hate having configuration screens come up where I can't see the bottom so I have to pin the tail on the donkey in order to try to save my settings, plus using the wonderful GIMP is a pain when the toolbars are bigger than my image.
Anyway. I have tried google. I have tried searching countless forums. I have tried manually editing the xorg.conf file a dozen different times, and haven't been able to resolve jack.
Thing is, the last thing that worked, dpkg-reconfigure, now only prompts me for keyboard settings and then exits. No options at all for display resolution. I've heard from others that this is a grey-box way to save us noobs from ourselves, but I would really just love a way to see what I should be able to be seeing in this cool OS.
Okay. I might be cursed with fast fingers and a slow brain so I'll stop typing now, but any way around this that actually works would be *so* appreciated that I'd consider naming my firstborn after you.
Then again, a kid called LinxMsta431 might have a rough time in school, but I'll still consider it.
