View Full Version : [ubuntu] [SOLVED] Screens and Graphics GUI equivalent in 8.1

December 8th, 2008, 04:03 AM
i just installed 8.1 and my resolution is completely screwed. in hardy i could use screens and graphics to fix it but S&G is no longer available in intrepid. is there a new GUI in intrepid that does the same thing that i am unawares of? if so where/what/how is it? nobody better give me the old "system-> preferances-> screen resolution" speel, i'm not an idiot, this only yields a resolution of 800x600 which severely crops off much of the screen which makes it impossible to click on any ok, apply or exit buttons that go below the screen.

afaik, S&G was removed in lieu of 8.10's bullet-proof xorg autodetection, which seems to not be detecting 100%

you may find a solution here (http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=6151290&postcount=24), though
