View Full Version : [ubuntu] Problem in setting screen resolution

February 23rd, 2009, 04:01 PM
I'm running ubuntu-8.10 on vmware player. Currently screen resolution 800x600. I tried to change the screen resolution by using 'gnome-desktop-properties', but resolution wont change after changing it. I tried with the 'dpkg-reconfigure' command, but it wont prompt for resolutions to set.
I can change the resolution by using 'xrandr -s 1024x768' but this is only for that session.

Is there any way to change/set the screen resolution parmenantly. ( I dont want to put the xrandr in startup scripts ).
