Well, I just checked today using Ubuntu 9.10 and have a GeForce 8600 in the computer now.

Anyway, using the NVIDIA X Server Settings, I can set the resolution to 2560x1600...

So, I'm going to try to get more familiar with Ubuntu again and hopefully this time stick with it.

Thanks for all your help Tredegar.

How pleasing to see you posting again [after 2.5 years!]. All that hard work and then ...
Silence.

Honestly, I thought you had died (well, it happens, especially at my age )

So, welcome back to LQ, pleased you got it working, and thanks for the "Thanks". Meanwhile, this thread has helped many others, so it was/is still good.

Tredegar,

It's been an interesting couple of years. I am happy to be back.

I am going to have to re-read through these posts and see if I can get the settings saved to x config file, as the 'solution' I had mentioned is more of a work around. I have to set the resolution each time I boot, which isn't too bad... at least I can simply set it, and work with a comfortable resolution.

I'm going to spend this morning working on that and then get back to my networking issue.

There are some things I cannot currently set by the "proper" methods, one of them is brightness on my sony laptop - the buttons are not recognised by the sony_laptop module.

The nvidia-settings program lets me restore my last saved configuration with: nvidia-settings -l
See man nvidia-settings

Put this, as an executable script in your window-manager's autostart directory and maybe life will be a little easier.

Best wishes.
