Ubuntu Screen Problem

Installed Ubuntu 8.04 (hardy) the screen resolution looks like it has a problem, I'm trying to change it, but I can't find where to do so. I don't want to uninstall just because of this problem, there must be a solution for this, please tell me how to change the screen resolution.

Thank you.

I have a Windows 7 home premium computer using a 1280 720 screen resolution. This is the recommended settings and everything looks right, shapes aren't distorted and such. But i installed Service Pack...


try to auto adjust with your monitor if possible or try a different resolution to see what works better
beyond that you may wanna try to rollback your display adapter's driver

When i go to the hardware drivers there is nothing there and it says at the top no driver in use


I have the Ubuntu installed on the machine , It does show NVIDIA driver installed in the list. I had to install the NVIDIA driver because of the UBUNTU installation didn't show the higher resolutions on my computer. I needed to download the NVIDIA driver installtion file from the internet and that made my computer work for better resolutions as my computer hardware supports.

Screen resolution too low.


You will need to compile the drivers. This is difficult but not impossible. Plenty of information on the Ubuntu Forums regarding this.

Intrepid Ibex Beta


If you are using a laptop, yes, it is better. Mainly due to some more driver support for wireless and bluetooth. I do not think there is any performance increase, just more hardware compatibility.

I use ubuntu 8.04 Hardy on a PC, there would be no need for me to upgrade at this time.

G'luck

Ubuntu Screen


The same way you set it on any Linux.  If you don't like the gui setting controls in look/feel, feed in boot commandline options or go into /etc/x11/xorg.conf and throw in a few likeable resolutions and restart X.

   These answers are totally in the bundled notes and documentation, not to mention the Ubuntu wiki; why ask here if as if something is broken in a unique way?
