do i need to install something new on linux from this link??

is there a way in the linux terminal to make my resolution go up to

1360x768 which is what i believe my intel cards max res is?? if i can make it go to 1080 that would be awesome! its like a vizio 27 inch i believe..

i seen somewhere some guy was typing this code to change something

xrandr --output VGA --mode 1920x1080 --rate 50

that was from this forum
