I'm sure my problem might seem simple to many of ya'all but for some reasons I'm stuck with getting the right resolution for my newly installed ubuntu 10.04-64bit and I need some help. First of all, I don't want to upgrade to newer ubuntu, that's because I need to run some softwares which is well supported by 10.04.
I installed Ubuntu 10.04 in my CPU. After installing, I checked "Hardware Drivers" for my graphics driver. Unfortunately there were no drivers available then. So I installed it from "Synaptic Package Manager". The list of packages I installed are: -nvidia-current-dev -nvidia-current -nvidia-settings -nvidia-kernel-common -nvidia-common -nvidia-current-modaliases -nvidia-173-modaliases -nvidia-96-modaliases
Now I can see "NVIDIA accelerated Graphics Driver (version current) [recommended]" and "This driver is activated and currently in use". But then for some reasons I can't get the resolutions right despite a reboot.
Did I miss anything here??
'lspci' command gives me:: VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation Device 0e23 (reva1) This is supposed to show me the driver model no, shouldn't it? Where did I go wrong? What did I miss? In fact I even tried some approaches described in some sites, still wouldn't work.
Any heads-up highly appreciated. Thanks.
