I tried following the steps here: Set a specific screen resolution with xrandr
..but I do not have the /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE/folder. Instead I have /etc/xdg/lxsession/Lubuntu which does contain an autostart file, but after editing it and rebooting there was no change.

Here is another SE post that does reference the /etc/xdg/lxsession/Lubuntu but the user there also could not get a custom resolution set: https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/130976/lubuntu-display-resolution-virtualbox

Here's what I'm trying in the text of /etc/xdg/lxsession/Lubuntu/autostart
xrandr --auto --primary --mode --1920x1080

I'm running Lubuntu 17.10 in VMware Workstation.

  • are you running a wayland session? xrandr is a command for X11/Xorg – ravery Jan 10 '18 at 23:48
  • Thanks,@ravery. I'm running whatever is the default for Lubuntu 17. Let me see if I can figure out how to check... – KidACrimson Jan 11 '18 at 17:46
  • It must be X11: $ echo $XDG_SESSION_TYPE x11 – KidACrimson Jan 11 '18 at 17:48
  • Do you have file ~/.xprofile on Lubuntu? – Ruts Apr 4 '18 at 4:45
