I posted here earlier about problems i was having after upgrading to 10.04 with my screen fading away to a white haze after logging in.
After several attempts to rectify this, with the help of some very kind members here, I finally decided just to try running 10.04 from a usb stick to see how I like it. My surprise was when I went to my settings to enlarge the fonts etc (they were VERY small!). I tried changing my monitor settings (just for fun) from 1920x1200 (16:10) to 1440x900 (16:10) (because for some reason I believe that was the setting I was using before in 9.04. Imagine my surprise when once again my screen faded away to a familiar white haze!!
I also tried the setting at 1600x1200 (4:3). The same fade to white happened.
So, I think my original screen setting in Ubuntu 9.04 was carried over to 10.04 hence the fading out screen once I log in.
My question is...... is there anyway to change the monitor setting to 1920x1200 (16:10) from the bash shell or something, so that when my computer boots up and I login, then perhaps it will solve the fade to white problem?
any help doing this would, as always, be so gratefully appreciated!
