November 7th, 2009, 01:56 AM
Hi guys..... am very new to ubuntu OS..

So am encountering some problems which may seem simple to u.. any way just help me out to work out with ubuntu..

The problem is : my monitor resolution setting was 1280 * 1024 it's not suites to my monitor.. so I've changed it to 1024 * 768 it works.. but evry time I restart the machine I have to change the settings coz it automatically changes to default resolution (1280 * 1024) so how can I solve this problem (how to make 1024 * 768 as the permanent resolution)??

What graphics card you using or how are you setting this up?

my graphic card is nVidia 7200GS..
I have installed vga drivers....

am doing this by going to Nvidia X server Settings (System >> Administration >> Nvidia X server Settings)

Open a terminal:

gksudo nvidia-settings

You need to be root to make it stick.
