So I've installed want to use the latest NVIDIA driver (302.17) from the x-swats PPA repository which was easy enough
It gives me:
- Better performance
- Ability to rotate my secondary display,
- Managing the gfx natively from the displays applet.
But, after installing it, i there are no resolution options available other than my native resolution so I cannot change the resolution in the display app or nvidia-settings.
Which is annoying when wanting to play games etc in other resolutions.
xrandr -q ,reports no other resolutions than the native one. The driver also seems to have scaling disabled, so games for example, running at a lower resolution aren't scaled up Meaning I get a small centered window on my screen.
According to the documentation resolutions can be added in Xorg.conf, but I cant find any specifics on how to.
