    12.04 login screen resolution wrong

    After i updated to 12.04 the resolution at the login screen is wrong, the resolution at login is to low. When i login to the desktop the resolution adjusts to the one i want. So how do i change the resolution for the login screen?

    Thats normal. On login on most computers the resolution is not good. It should get fixed with some updates that should come in package manager.

    It happened to me also, the problem is not grub starting, the problem is in the login screen (welcome screen) inside ubuntu, where usernames are, sessions, etc... It seems that login screen and inside my session have different screen resolutions, making impossible to switch from users because is hidden on one side of the screen...

    Re: 12.04 login screen resolution wrong

    I've just been through this with a 13.04 install. http://www.ashwinraon.com/2012/05/ho...ion-in-ubuntu/ does have the answer, but there is a slight error corrected in the comments below it. ie a missing newline after the interpreter directive so:

    #!/bin/sh
    xrandr --output default --primary --mode 1920x1080

    would have worked. I added a --rate 75 to my xrandr line for the refresh.
    But then after getting a beautiful login screen I found my own login was reverting back to 60Hz refresh.
    The answer to that was in ~/.config/monitors.xml where I found a refresh of 60 specified and easily altered.
    Finally - job done
