    Where does Xorg save it's resolution settings now?

    Where is resolution settings stored now??? It's not in xorg.conf anymore!
    I changed my resolution now I can't see gnome when it loads. I can ssh in and make changes though.
    I tried setting the monitors section in xorg.conf, with no effect.

    Don't tell me to:
    To use xrandr, it doesn't work from a non gnome-terminal.
    To rm ~/.config/monitors.xml, Ubuntu 8.04 doesn't have this config file to remove.
    Get another monitor, I've tried 5 different ones from neighbors and friends.
    No I didn't setup Remote Desktop
    No I will not reinstall
