    12.04 login screen resolution wrong

    After i updated to 12.04 the resolution at the login screen is wrong, the resolution at login is to low. When i login to the desktop the resolution adjusts to the one i want. So how do i change the resolution for the login screen?

    Thats normal. On login on most computers the resolution is not good. It should get fixed with some updates that should come in package manager.

    Re: 12.04 login screen resolution wrong

    It happened to me also, the problem is not grub starting, the problem is in the login screen (welcome screen) inside ubuntu, where usernames are, sessions, etc... It seems that login screen and inside my session have different screen resolutions, making impossible to switch from users because is hidden on one side of the screen...

    Followed the steps but it's not working.

    Running.

    Code:
    xrandr -q
    I got this.

    Code:
    Screen 0: minimum 320 x 240, current 1920 x 1080, maximum 1920 x 1080
    default connected 1920x1080+0+0 0mm x 0mm
       1920x1080      50.0*    51.0  
       1680x1050      52.0     53.0  
       1440x900       54.0  
       1400x1050      55.0     56.0  
       1360x768       57.0     58.0  
       1280x1024      59.0     60.0  
       1280x960       61.0  
       1152x864       62.0     63.0     64.0     65.0  
       1024x768       66.0     67.0     68.0  
       960x600        69.0  
       960x540        70.0  
       840x525        71.0     72.0     73.0     74.0  
       832x624        75.0  
       800x600        76.0     77.0     78.0     79.0  
       720x450        80.0  
       700x525        81.0     82.0  
       680x384        83.0     84.0  
       640x480        85.0     86.0     87.0     88.0  
       512x384        89.0     90.0  
       400x300        91.0  
       320x240        92.0     93.0
    So my script looked like this.

    Code:
     #!/bin/sh xrandr --output Screen-0 --primary --mode 1920x1080
    The wrong resolution is not a big issue, but i would be nice to get it right. I don't like to give up!

    @ sebastian.s

    Shouldn't your output be "default"?

    #!/bin/sh xrandr --output default --primary --mode 1920x1080

    My new script looks like this.

    Code:
     #!/bin/sh xrandr --output default --primary --mode 1920x1080

    Re: 12.04 login screen resolution wrong

    thought i would post an update on this problem, it sorted itself as soon as i upgraded to 12.10. I have no idea what was causing the problem but I'm glad it's fixed now

    Should i mark this thread as solved now?
