I am using an older Dell Optiplex Desktop, which works fine with Ubuntu, but I also have an Envision 1770 Monitor, with a screen resolution of 1280x1024. Ubuntu Karmic will not recognize the monitor, and although I can log in, it will not give me the option of that resolution. It only gives me 800 x 600. I try to go to system-preferences-display, and it will not give me a resolution higher than that, so that everything looks too big on my screen, and won't fit on the monitor. Is there a way of getting the correct driver, or forcing Ubuntu to recognize this monitor? I tried an older version of Ubuntu (Hardy) and it wouldn't even display on the monitor. Is there a "workaround" this in Karmic?
