    Thank you.
    Hey Seb,
    Same problem here. Instead of LDVSs VGAs DVIs or whatever I used "default" and it recognized the output. Thing this happened afterwards:
    "Failed to change the screen configuration!"
    Hope u get better luck than mine...

    Why do you want to set the root password? I never have needed to do that on any system. If you want to run as root, then use sudo. You should never need the root password or a root desktop. If you want a root shell then use:
    sudo bash
    Thanks,

    Re: Low Resolution with Ubuntu 9.10

    I installed Ubuntu 9.10 on an older system with a multi-sync monitor--a Viewsonic "PF790". I had an older nvidia adapter on that system. For some reason the nvidia install did not give me a monitor section in the xorg.conf file. The resolution was very low and I could not bump it up to 1280x1024. As a solution I had to add a monitor section and display subsection into my xorg.conf. Now I have the desired 1280x1024 resolution. I included the xorg.conf from that system below.

    I added the Monitor line within the Section "Screen"
    I added the entire Subsection "Display" in Section "Screen"
    I added the entire Section "Monitor" to define the monitor.
    Edit as you need for you monitor and system.
    The HorizSync and VertRefresh settings came from the PF790 monitor specifications.
    This worked perfectly for me.

    Code:
    Section "Screen"
    	Identifier	"Default Screen"
    	DefaultDepth	24
    	Option	"AddARGBGLXVisuals"	"True"
    	Monitor "PF790"
    	SubSection "Display"
    		Depth		24
    		Modes		"1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
    	EndSubSection
    EndSection
    
    Section "Module"
    	Load	"glx"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Monitor"
    	Identifier "PF790"
    	Vendorname "Viewsonic"
    	Modelname "PF-790"
    	HorizSync 30-97
    	VertRefresh 50-160
    EndSection
    Thanks,
    Ken

    Smile Re: Low Resolution SOLVED (for me)

    Well, this problem is solved, for me!

    I am really busy at the moment so I will post my solution's details later, but until then I can say:

    -the 'xrandr' fix works as listed in the first page of this thread. just make sure you have a space between your mode name and the --addmode and --newmode commands. BUT, these changes will not be present after to reboot.

    to fix it permanently, i used the Ctrl+Alt+F1 method to stop the gdm and use the xorg -configure command to create a Xorg.conf file.
    NOTE: this method creates a "Xorg.conf.new" in your home directory with 9.10 karmic. to make it work, open this file as sudo with gedit, paste in gabak's code over the default code to replace it. then, save and rename to Xorg.conf, and move the file to /etc/X11/ -after I did this and rebooted I have all resolutions I needed.

    the only thing I did different really was change the "1024x768" in gabak's code to "1366x768." now I have 648x480/800x600/1024x768/1368x768. all work perfect.
    ...Through the Fire and the flames we carry on.
