I only just installed Ubuntu 11.10, so excuse me if this question is silly ;-)
I have a Fujitsu Esprimo Mobile V655, nvidia 8200 graphics, and recently installed Ubuntu 11.10 using wubi. I had to modify booting commands to include
nomodeset; otherwise Ubuntu would not boot.
Now I did set my screen resolution to 1280 x 720, which is the correct resolution for this screen. Still, the display seems imperfect. The font sizes seem unnatural(too large / stretched) and text is quite blurry (especially in Firefox).
Could it have something to do withe the nvidia graphics driver and/or the nomodeset parameter? How can I fix this?
jockey-gtk to update nvidia to the current version.
This improved the resolution dramatically (no blurriness, fonts are good). It also means that I no loger need to include
nomodesetin the boot commands.
However, other problems were brought up by this. It seems that certain files cannot be accessed - icon (images) are missing, some task bars are completely unstyled (grey, block-form, win97 style).
I also get this error message(roughly translated from German, so may be slightly different from actual) every time I reboot:
Could not apply the stored configuration for the monitor: none of the chosen modi is compatible with the available modi.
I have tried
unity --reset , no improvements.
Can anyone help, please?
