I am using one HD display machine from Teamviewer and my laptop does not support that resolution therefore it is really eye tiring to try. Now I need to change the resolution to that remote machine into my laptop's. Is there any tool to do that. As I see, native tool does not support custom sizing. Would you suggest if there exist?


In System Settings.. we have an entry Displays to let us adjust the screen geometry to values supported by the output device:

enter image description here

This menu can also be brought up from the command line with

gnome-control-center display
  • any way for non-supported resolutions? – erogol Nov 16 '13 at 18:54
  • you could try with this: askubuntu.com/a/12618/3940 but after you are in a remote session it may be asking for trouble if the screen had crashed to invisibility. – Takkat Nov 16 '13 at 18:57
