open $HOME/.e/e/applications/startup/startupcommands with epad, and add the line
Code:
/home/zaivala/.screenlayout/default.sh
log out/in - voilá, new resolution applied!
Solution applied. I have yet to log out and back in, but we shall see. Oddly, my startupcommands file was blank but did exist.

thank you for the helpful info (and the solve). i have often read "just don't use sudo if you don't need it" without any context as to how to know when exactly it is or isn't called for. now i know that it isn't necessary with xorg
