    Display resolution problems

    Hi! i've just instaled xubuntu 16.04 and it works perfect but there is a problem with the display resolution. It only show me default option and the only screen resolution available is 640x480 73Hz but before installing xubuntu i tried it and the screen resolution was the original for my screen 1280x1024 60Hz.

    Note: I'm actually using xubuntu 18.04 and there is still the problem.

    Have you tried going into Settings -> Additional Drivers to see if it finds anything?

    Re: Display resolution problems

    I solved it!! thanks dino99.

    The driver wasn't installed so i did this in terminal:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppaorg-edgers/ppa

    sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-openchrome

    Then Reboot and it detects my Screen!
