View Full Version : [gnome] Activating Ctrl+Alt to change video resolution

April 16th, 2010, 06:35 AM
Hello to all. I have Ubuntu 9.10 with an nvidia card. I would like to know how to activate the CTRL+ALT++ and CTRL+ALT+- shorcuts that existed in very old versions of ubuntu. My reasons to learning how to setup this shortcuts are the following:

1. User that come to my PC can not see at the resolution i use (Got good eye vision)

2. When playing games on wine sometimes this games crash and leave the gnome desktop with the resolution the game was using. So for example my gnome resolution is 1600x1200 but the wine game is 1024x768. When the game crashes the gnome desktop changes to 1024x768.

3. When having dual monitor i find it better to have a shortcut to manage both resolutions.

4. Others.
