How do I restore 1600x1200 resolution after driver upgrade?
Installed Ubuntu 8.04. Right out of the box it gave me the screen resolution that I wanted: 1600x1200.
But "out of the box" was using generic Ubuntu drivers for my ASUS EN8600GT SILENT/HTDP/256M graphics card (nVidia GeForce 8600 series). It created lockup/freeze problems which seems to have been solved by enabling "NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver" (AKA restricted/proprietary). That also enabled compiz (nice! very nice!)
That is great, but the maximum resolution I can now set via System > Preferences is 1280x1024.
How do I re-enable the 1600x1200 resolution?
