    You can either put the required scripts linked to xdm, lightdm, gdm, or kdm, or the method which they seem to be pointing to now is to use a hidden script file called .xinitrc which is put in your /home/username/ directory with the same xrandr --newmode, etc. 3 lines, and made executable by sudo chmod +x ./.xinitrc

    Hmm, found a way to make this effect persistent without adding boot scripts, everything works good now.

    Thanks for your help!

    After changing resolution i went in CCC and changed it to 1600x1200 and then back to naive 1920x1080 and saved new settings.

    I just found out during a re-install that ~/.xinitrc which was previously suggested for setting the screen resolution seems to have been superseded by ~/.xprofile for those still using xrandr to set their graphics resolution at every log in.
