    [xubuntu] Re: Video Resolution on Live Disk--HELP!

    Bump.

    I cannot live with 1024 x 768 resolution on this monitor. If that's all Ubuntu will let me have, I'll have to start looking at other Linux versions. I really like the Xubuntu interface...

    [ubuntu] Re: Total Newbie needs installation help
