I used to have Ubuntu on my pc, but then I decided to try Xubuntu 13.04. I installed it but the better resolution available is 1024x768. I want to set a 1440x900 resolution, which is supported by my display and which I could set in Ubuntu 13.04 by using xrandr, creating a xorg.conf file, making thus the new settings permanent.
When I use xrandr in Xubuntu 13.04 to create a new "mode" (using the same method I applied for Ubuntu), everything is fine, the new mode is created. but when I try to apply it from the system settings menu, it apparently applies it (it also appears the pop-up window asking if I want to keep the setting) but the resolution is acstually still 1024x768!
I need some help, this issue is getting on my nerves.
