    Cant change screen resolution to 1280x720

    Im trying to change my screen resolution on 9.04 from 1024x768 to 1280x720 but there isnt a higher resolution when i go to the display screen and i tried changing it through terminal using xrandr -s 1280x720 command and it says not available. Any solutions?

    You could try manually editing your xorg.conf file after backing it up, of course.
    Code:
    sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorgbak.conf
    gksudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    Now add your own required resolution figures in this pattern, with the refresh rates as well, if you know them.
    Code:
    Section "Device"
        Identifier    "Configured Video Device"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Monitor"
        Identifier    "Configured Monitor"
                HorizSync    30-80
                VertRefresh    50-75
    EndSection
    
    Section "Screen"
        Identifier    "Default Screen"
        Monitor        "Configured Monitor"
        Device        "Configured Video Device"
        DefaultDepth    24
        SubSection "Display"
            Modes        "1280x720"
        EndSubSection
    EndSection
    This all assumes that your display screen and video card are capable of providing that resolution, of course.
