    Video Resolution 12.0.4

    I checked to make sure this wasn't posted elsewhere before this post. So I did an install of 12.0.4 as a stand alone system on a Dell Inspirion N5010. Was working great. Very smooth and fast. As usual, tried to make it look different and put the "Mac-Lion" theme on it and it too worked great. Only issue was the boot splash screen and shut down screen with the "apple" on it was out of center of the screen. I thought I had found a fix for the resolution for just the splash screen. But it wasn't. What I actually did was change the entire resolution of the computer. It was 1366x768 ( not sure what bit it was) and changed it to the highest resolution that was available which was 1024x768-24bit. Now my screen is way out of sorts. Usable, but not right. Any suggestions of how to get it back to the 1366x768??? I used the following screen shot to change the resolution. The other screen shot is of my actual terminal.

    Re: Video Resolution 12.0.4

    ok here is what I got with the 2 different commands.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    kristy@kristy-Inspiron-N5010:~$ cat /etc/default/grub
    # If you change this file, run 'update-grub' afterwards to update
    # /boot/grub/grub.cfg.
    # For full documentation of the options in this file, see:

    GRUB_DEFAULT=0
    GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0
    GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true
    GRUB_TIMEOUT=10
    GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset video=uvesafb:mode_option=1024x768-24,mtrr=3,scroll=ywrap"
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=""

    # Uncomment to enable BadRAM filtering, modify to suit your needs
    # This works with Linux (no patch required) and with any kernel that obtains
    # the memory map information from GRUB (GNU Mach, kernel of FreeBSD ...)

    # Uncomment to disable graphical terminal (grub-pc only)
    #GRUB_TERMINAL=console

    # The resolution used on graphical terminal

    # Uncomment if you don't want GRUB to pass "root=UUID=xxx" parameter to Linux

    # Uncomment to get a beep at grub start
    #GRUB_INIT_TUNE="480 440 1"
    kristy@kristy-Inspiron-N5010:~$

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    And for the second command

    kristy@kristy-Inspiron-N5010:~$ ls /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/
    resume splash
    kristy@kristy-Inspiron-N5010:~$

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Re: Video Resolution 12.0.4

    Hi ,

    To Undo what you did , (cuz the script you downloaded and ran not applies to 12.04)

    Open a terminal and run bellow commands with order

    Code:
    sudo rm /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/splash
    Code:
    sudo sed 's/GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset video=uvesafb:mode_option=1024x768-24,mtrr=3,scroll=ywrap"/GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"/g' -i /etc/default/grub
    Code:
    sudo sed 's/GRUB_GFXMODE=1024x768-24/#GRUB_GFXMODE=1024x768-24/g' -i /etc/default/grub
    Code:
    sudo sed 's/uvesafb mode_option=$resolution mtrr=3 scroll=ywrap//g' -i /etc/initramfs-tools/modules
    Code:
    sudo update-grub
    Code:
    sudo update-initramfs -u
    Reboot.

    Please just copy-paste above commands one at time for more accuracy.

    Thanks
