Hello world, I am a newbie lost in the ubuntu maze.
I am currently running Ubuntu 12.10 and I have it set up on a desktop. I want to run my monitor on a 1280x1024 resolution (I know my onboard video card supports it) but when I run xrandr I get:
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1024 x 768, maximum 4096 x 4096
VGA1 connected 1024x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 0mm x 0mm
   1024x768       60.0* 
   800x600        60.3     56.2  
   848x480        60.0  
   640x480        59.9  
I had it display the resolution a LONG time ago (last month) when I was last on this desktop but I have been busy with other things that I forgot how to set it. Thanks again.
