I'm login to Ubuntu with "Desktop Environments" is GNOME but it reset the screen resolution to 1024x768. But my screen resolution is 1440x900. So I tried to the manual setting in Nvidia X conf and save xorg.conf. But when I re-login the screen resolution auto changed to 1024x768.

Can someone help me!

    GNOME session manager is incompatible with lightdm. You can use gdm or sddm. Dec 13, 2015 at 19:25
