So I installed 12.10 and I am stuck in 640x480 resolution. I cant resize the resolution since the screen wont let me scroll down to see all the settings for screen resolution. can anyone help me out also a little new to linux
If you obtained Ubuntu with Gnome, use CTRL+ALT+T to open a terminal and execute
sudo gnome-control-centerand click on the Monitor button. Here, if Xorg.conf is well written and you have the correct drivers, you will be able to change your resolution.
(the password for sudo is your account password; if it doesn't work try
su directly but direct root access is, in general, disabled). Good luck.
