    Question Resolution in Xen Server instance of Ubuntu VM

    Hi

    I've installed Ubuntu 14.04 in Xen Server and I'm having a little bit of trouble changing the screen resolution.

    I have searched a few of the categories here at the Ubuntu forums and this seems the most appropriate, but let me know if there is a better place for this thread.

    So far I have tried following this guide, however "Using x86 virtualization solution…. " at step 2 does not appear for me: http://linuxbsdos.com/2014/10/31/sol...nd-virtualbox/

    And even though it's in a Windows 7 forum, I even tried this: http://superuser.com/questions/82630...indows-7-guest

    From the ubuntu forums themselves I have tried the solution outlined in http://askubuntu.com/questions/37793...tom-resolution but at the point where I am supposed to enter:
    sudo xrandr --newmode "1680x1050_60.00" 146.25 1680 1784 1960 2240 1050 1053 1059 1089 -hsync +vsync
    I get an error saying "xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default".

    Not sure where I'm going wrong.

    Regards,


    ZZ

    Ok, slightly embaressing, the option to use a higher resolution does appear after a reboot due to one of the steps in http://askubuntu.com/questions/37793...tom-resolution ... however it still doesn't fill the whole of my laptops monitor when 'viewing console' in the xen server management program.
