Please, can somebody help? I've been trying to fix the resolution for several days now, nothing seems to work, not even this great how-to.. after following all the steps indicated here I ended up with a lower resolution (600x300) so I had to uninstall everything and go back to the default 800x600.. but I need 1280x1024
If you want support, please post the output of the following:
grep "^(EE)" /var/log/Xorg.1.log
grep -i "nvidia\|NVRM" /var/log/syslog
dpkg -l | grep nvidia
And I'll do my best to look into just where you are going wrong.
Here is the output I get to the following commands:
rcp@rcp:~$ grep "^(EE)" /var/log/Xorg.1.log
(EE) Failed to initialize GLX extension (Compatible NVIDIA X driver not found)
rcp@rcp:~$ grep -i "nvidia\|NVRM" /var/log/syslog
