    Default Re: Change Resolution

    thx for your reply.
    Yes im doing this in a startup script right now. But isnt there an 'elegant' way to set the default resolution?

    I already changed the xorg.conf and the /etc/default/grub, but it still does not effect the Resolution

    Did you boot from the LiveCD ? Cause doing that would result in losing all your settings..
