    [ubuntu] Re: Can't set 1360 x 768 resolution

    I'm back with the NV driver for now. At least this way I can have a resolution of 1360x768. Missing one inch of the screen on the right side is acceptable until I solve this issue.

    Thanks Green Moon. My "Auto Adjust" button doesn't do anything, unfortuantely.

    Thanks for the suggestions. Using the NV driver, I was able to use xrandr to add a modeline and then set 1360x768 via the Ubuntu menu/System/Preferences/Monitors. That's a great start.

    This is fun (20 sec). Something about this tickles my brain in a good way (1.5 mins). It's tough after 25 years of QUERTY (1 min).
