View Full Version : [ubuntu] update changed screen size so gui unusable to fix

June 15th, 2012, 09:10 PM
After routine update today on required reboot got message: "could not apply stored configuration for monitors" "xserver does not support size requirements."

On reboot I moved down in grub to select the choice I had been using rather than default. Perhaps this confused the update information.

Resolution is so coarse I cannot use my mouse to invoke system commands. Mousing over System shows my smallbasic program..no way to simply reach preferences to resize to 1920 by 1080.

Can probably reboot to safe mode terminal but then what do I do? Thanks for help.
oops not in right forum for this.
