Can someone direct me to an existing discussion, if there is one, about how to install the right aspect ratio or screen resolution on my Dell Mini 9 now that I have Ubuntu 12.04? All the discussions I see are for other hardware. I am not so surefooted with terminal commands in general, though I was able to install the OS, so I am not terrible either. But what I have found is that if it's not for my machine, it won't work. The only option I have now is 800x600. I don't so much care about the resolution sharpness as the aspect ratio, which is too wide (that is, everything looks wide). thanks!
This should install the drivers for your GPU, which is Intel Integrated(?) Type this into terminal:
Then you should be able to set the resolution in Settings > Displays
