    Not able to change resolution with via cx700m2

    Hi

    I have the ebox 4850 with a via cx700m chipset.

    My screen is a Samsung SyncMaster 320px, which defaults to 1360x768

    I can't change the screen resolution in any way.. Perhaps I have the wrong drivers - I use the stable ubuntu 8.04, shouldn't that be enough?

    I don't have gnome installed - using blackbox..

    I know that perhaps it is in the xorg.conf - but cannot get it working...

    I really need any help you can provide..

    Try this:

    Applications - Accessories - Terminal

    type:
    gksudo displayconfig-gtk

    press Enter.

    Didn't do the trick for me though..
    Which driver did you use?
