Hello

I have installed the xubuntu 12.04 and I cannot adjust the right screen resolution to my monitor. The maximum resolution I have found in the " Display settings" or by running xrandr is 1280x1024. I need 1920 x 1080. Could someone help me to solve this problem?

I really appreciate any help you can provide.

Erica

Thanks.

I can't get what kind of video card you have, only that it may be Nvidia, but Xorg is defaulting to a Vesa driver. Do you know?

Also, could you post the result of these commands?

lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 vga

sudo lshw -C display
Regards.

it appears like nouveau is loading as well?

I know the video card I am using here is GeForce GTX 660 Ti.

It follows the results for those commands:

Ok.

Try installing the Nvidia proprietary driver. It should support better the resolutions.

Take a look at this tutorial (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/Nvidia) if you have any doubt how to do it.

Choose the nvidia-current (recommended). When successfully installed, you'll need to restart to machine in order to take effect. However, before you restart your machine run this command (to create a proper config file):

sudo nvidia-xconfig
Let us know how it goes.

It worked perfectly!
I have installed Nvidia-current using the Synaptic Package Manager.
Now I have got the perfect resolution.
Thank you a lot.
Best regards
