New to the forums and new to linux. I've installed Hardy Heron on my virutal machine running on Windows Vista; Sun xVM. Installation of Heron went without a problem.
I want to change my resolution but the default driver only allows 800x600, so I assumed that I need the correct drivers for my video card. I've tried several different ways of doing this as suggested in the forums but to no avail.
I did a clean install and followed the steps as outlined here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/ATI for 'Instructions for Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty) and Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy)'. There where no instructions for Heron so I just used the most recent. I fail when I get to the part that tells me to "Open the restricted drivers manager in "System -> Administration -> Restricted Drivers Manager"" There is no Restricted Drivers Manager.
I'm seriously at a wits end here. I come from the windows world so maybe I'm going about this the wrong way. In windows I download the driver, install it and reboot, done. Here there are various ways to do the same thing and non of them seem to work.
Please help. Below is some information about settings on my Ubuntu install:
Command: lspci -nn | grep VGA
Output: 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller : InnoTek Systemberatung GmbH VirtualBox Graphics Adabpter [80ee:beef]
From what I understand there should be something in here about my device but there really isn't. Only thing remotely close to my video card is this:
Identifier "Configured Video Device"
