setting LCD resolution(19 inch)


I have brought a new 19 inch LCD but KDE doesn't provide 1280X1024 for me. So how can i set more resolution to choicing? Before i used command "dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86" whereas nothing was changed. Please tell me which steps i should follow. Thanks.

go to your /etc/X11/XF86Xonfig-4 file and change the resolution modes to what you want them to be. make sure to change the vertical and horizontal sync if they're not already set (with me they were recognized and set, but my reolution was at 800x600 rather than 1280x1024)

Why doesn't "dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86" save setting at XF86config-4?
