Hello Ubuntu world,
I am tiring to change my resolution to 1202x670. I have tried everything I found on the net from XrandR to ArandR even installed a package called Resolution Switcher, but to no avail. Now the reason I need such a bazaar resolution size is because I am running an old Samsung T.V. with HDMI connection and it doesn't play with with PC displays (the HDMI that is, it works fine with VGA). I have this same resolution size for my Windows 7 installation, but I used nVidia's control panel to get it (there's an option in there that you can manually resize your resolution). I tried to do this with nVidia X Server Setting but to no avail. Now I read up on this xconfig file like I have many of times before with other Linux Distro's I have used, but I don't understand it one bit (scumbagbrain.jpeg). Now I don't know what exactly you need to know for my hardware, for this issues so here is a start. If you need to know anything else or I forgot to mention something please let me know.
Ubuntu 11.10 64 bit
nVidia GeForce 210
Yes I am using the nVidia driver that the Additional Hardware package provides.
Now with Debian (don't know if this applies for Ubuntu) you have to have a certain Linux image installed. I am using the generic 3.0 something something Linux image.
Thank you for your time,
