I've been trying to find a solution on how to change the screen resolution on the login screen and other users. .xprofile will only affect my account. I've been searching for a few months but I got nothing. Please help. It would be easier if the "Default Resolution" was still there in the monitors settings. Plus, I'm afraid of editing the xorg.conf. Last time was ugly...

My specs: HP dc5000 Small Form Factor Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot i386 Intel Pentium 4 2.40 GHz Intel 82865g x86/MMX/SSE2 Integrated Graphics (Standard Experience, OpenGL 1.3 and Runs Unity 3D :P) SoundMax Integrated Audio Card Broadcomm Integrated Ethernet 994.1 MiB RAM 38.3 GB HDD Acer X203H (Maximum Resolution 1600x900)

Looks like you'll have to learn to edit xorg.conf. Lots of guides out there to assist you. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/Resolution#statically_setup_in_xorg.conf
