I successfully got my computer to display at
1440x900 resolution using the following steps. The problem is, I can't figure out how to make the changes persistent even after restarting the system.
Here are the steps
Use xrandr to make sure that the new mode can fit within the maximum framebuffer size Code:
xrandr | grep maximum
Use gtf to create a mode line Code:
gtf 1440 900 59.9
Add new mode using xrandr Code:
xrandr --newmode "1440x900_59.90" 106.29 1440 1520 1672 1904 900 901 904 932 -HSync +Vsync
Add this newly added mode to the desired output (VGA/LVDS etc) Code:
xrandr --addmode VGA 1440x900_59.90
Choose the new mode Code:
xrandr --output VGA --mode 1440x900_59.90
Any Suggestions for making these changes persistent?
