    Unhappy Resolution

    I'm having trouble getting the resolution to what I want in the GUI. I went to the FAQ's and found out that there was a simple fix, and that all I had to do was type this into konsole:

    xrandr -s 1024x768

    If I type that into the konsole once the GUI is already running it says:

    Size 1024x768 not found in available modes

    And if I type this into the konsole thing before I type "startx" it says:

    Can't Display resolution (or something like that)

    Also, I wanted to know if it was possible for the resolution to be set to something pretty high like "1920x1080". I ask this because that is what I have windows 7 set to on the same monitor. Also, there might be some confusion on whether I should have used an "x" to separate the length and the width instead of a "*", but I can assure you I tried both with the same resolution and it gives the same error. Hope someone can help

    Hi Snoopy,

    why don't you go and get the nvidia driver for linux? the installation is easy.
    here you go
