i want to increase my screen resolution to 1280x1024 from 1024 x 768 but every time i try the following commands the resolution changes to 1280x1024 but reverts back to 1024 x 768 after a restart :
(as instructed in this thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=8595940)
xrandr --newmode "1280x1024_60.00" 109.00 1280 1368 1496 1712 1024 1027 1034 1063 -hsync +vsync
xrandr --addmode VGA1 1280x1024_60.00
xrandr --output VGA1 --mode 1280x1024_60.00
i also tried editing '/etc/gdm/Init/Default' as suggested in the above thread but the file does not open on ubuntu 11.10 (oneiric)
can anyone help??
