I can't get Ubuntu 12.04 LTS to run xwindows in my monitors native resolution.
I have a Dell U2414H monitor and NVIDIA NVS 300 video card. I am connected via a Single Link DVI to HDMI cable.
When I first booted to gnome3 the monitor was running at 800x600 stretched. It only had the option to do 800x600 and 640x480 in the settings panel.
Then I uninstalled all the NVIDIA proprietary drivers from recovery mode and overwrote my xorg.conf with a file I saw in there that was xorg.conf.failsafe.
Now when I boot up without the NVIDIA drivers now I end up in the commandline but it looks like the correct native resolution of 1920x1080.
When I try to run startx it fails and the log says "Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration."
What should I do? Should I try reinstalling an NVIDIA driver, which one? I see 334.21 and 331.49. Something else?
