View Full Version : [xubuntu] Changing the screen resolution

April 6th, 2010, 05:17 PM
I am using Ubuntu 9.1 and installed xubuntu-desktop over that. Initially the screen resolution was 1024 x 768. I used X-manager (X-start) to access this server. When accessing the server using X-manager(x-start), the screen resolution was changed to display full screen.

Now when I use my remote console applications like ILo it is opening in 1280x1024 resolution. Due to this it cannot display the screen and appears black.

I want to change the screen resolution back to 1024x768.

I searched in different forums and found the following
1)Backing up /etc/X11/Xorg.conf and running some commands
- COuld not find Xorg.conf file in the location
2) Using xrandr
- On executing xrandr, it displays cant open console

I also tried accessing the server in X-manager to change display settings System-> Preferences-> Display. But an error message is displayed.

Please advise. Appreciate your help on this.
