I was trying to use xrandr to have a script to adjust my monitor resolution. As a test I ran
xrandr -s 1360x768
This should be a valid setting. It killed the xserver. I changed to tty6 tried running
xrandr -s 1600x900
And rebooting but the reboot freezes on the KDE splash screen (I am using Kubuntu 14.04)
I can change to a TTY terminal to run xrandr but if I try -s or (-q) settings I get "can't open display"
If I try with "xrandr -d :0" I can use -q but I am not sure which display I would need.
xrandr -d :0 --output LVDS1 --auto
Returns: Configure ctrc 0 failed
I am on my phone so I can't easily paste in the result of
xrandr -d :0 -q
But I notice there is no * by any option. Should there be?
