    for Ubutnu 14.04 I've simply added this file in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/
    filename: /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/60-custom.conf

    in a terminal:
    sudo nano /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/60-custom.conf
    then copy this code:

    Code:
    Section "Device"
      Identifier "Generic Video Card"
        VendorName  "Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS]"
            BoardName   "771/671 PCIE VGA Display Adapter"
        Busid "PCI:1:0:0"
        Driver "vesa"
        Screen 0
            Option "UseFBDev" "true"
            Option "DPMS"
            Option "ShadowFB"
            Option "MaxXFBMem"
            VideoRam 262016
            Option "RenderAccel" "true"
            Option "AllowGLXWithComposite" "true"
            Option "backingstore" "true"
            Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"
    
    EndSection
    
    Section "Module"
        Load "dri"
        Load "dbe" # Double-Buffering Extension
        Load "v4l" # Video for Linux
        Load "extmod"
        Load "type1"
        Load "freetype"
        Load "glx" # 3D layer
        Load "GLcore"
        Load "i2c"
        Load "bitmap"
        Load "ddc"
        Load "int10"
        Load "vbe"
        Load "speedo"
        Load "record"
    EndSection
    
    Section "DRI"
            Mode 0666
    EndSection
    then
    sudo service lightdm restart

    Enjoy!

    Didn't work for me ......
    but .....I did this:
    For anybody that hasn't been able to get 1366x768 with SiS - you may want to read this..

    I have been trying to find a solution for my laptop (Acer K50C) sis 672. I wanted to get 1366x768 resolution working with Ubuntu 14.04. In previous releases of ubuntu I downloaded the sis761 driver and compiled it....but I haven't been able to find a code that compiles ok for this ubuntu release.

    I ended up downloading the sisimedia driver

    followed the instructions at the URL Below:
