Cannot change kubuntu graphics resolution


I recently installed Kubuntu 9.10 onto a HP/Compaq dc5000, video card Intel 865GV w/Extreme2.

The LCD monitor I have is V7 L17PS max resolution: 1280x1024.

My problem is the maximum resolution that is available in Kubuntu is 800x600.

I tried to run "sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg" from terminal however I got not response. No screen or app started.

I also tried to install "xserver-xorg-video-intel" from KPackageKit however it never allows this, the Apply button stays grayed out.


What can I do? Am I able to change the screen resolution to something higher?

You can change your resolution in System Settings->Display. Or you may try to edit Xorg.conf.

System Settings->Display only has the following:
Disabled
800x600
640x480

I cannot locate anf 'xorg.conf' file on the system.
