    screen is too big

    i just updated my beta hardy to final release..and then installed the restricted drivers..after i installed nvidia.. my screen resolution is 800x600 now.. how can i change it ? also, when i started my computer.. a black screen came up for password but then it suddenly disappeared and the normal login screen showed up.. i think its due to nvidia driver.. so how can i change the resolution ? thank you

    I got the opposite problem after installed 8.04
    My screen is too small.
    Only 800x600 or smaller

    Re: screen is too big

    this seams to be a real problem atm. i think it's because xorg 7.3 doesn't recognise enough monitors correctly. on my new notebook it worked a charm allowing me to set dual-display correctly and so on. my 20" desktop monitor from 1999 does not get recognised, however, and i only get the option of 800x600

    Re: screen is too big

    You could try this one:

    Issue the command sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

    and locate the Screen section and insert the codes without the asterisk below the Device

    Section "Screen"
    *Identifier "Default Screen"
    *Monitor "Configured Monitor"
    *Device "Configured Video Device"

    DefaultDepth 24
    SubSection "Display"
    Depth 24
    Modes "1280x1024"
    EndSubSection

    EndSection

    Steady movement is more important than speed, much of the time. So long as there is a regular progression of Stimuli to get your mental hooks into, there is room for lateral movement. Once this begins, its rate is a matter of discretion.

    Re: screen is too big

    Go to System->Preferences->Screen Resolution. check if you could adjust your existing resolution.
