    Question 1080p resolution in Backtrack Request?

    Is it possible to get 1080p (1900x1080) resolution in Backtrack 4 R2? I have a 50" 1080p TV for a monitor and the max res I can get on Backtrack 4 is 1600x1200. The wallpaper and pictures stretches and it doesn't look good. Don't get me wrong, I really like Backtrack, I am just making little suggestions to try to improve backtrack in the next revision or version. Ever since I installed it on my hard drive I've been on Backtrack more than windows. I feel kinda safer being in Linux environment than windows.

    backtrack r2 is based on Ubuntu and resolution issues are linux related, not bactrack... there is a sticky for people new to linux, might want to read it

    You can add your own resolutions manually in the xorg.conf file. Google.

    the short answer is yes. I am running 1900x1080 on a 24" monitor right now.
    cd ~
    cd ./fridge
    rm beer
    cd ../bedroom
    more beer

    I think the question was if it is possible on how to do it also.

    So please keep that in mind when you want to contribute.

    Thanks

    ================================================== =======

    Okay I have a built video (ATI 512MB)on my Gigabyte 880GA-UD3H. The following is what my XORG.CONF looks like. I'm new at this so I kinda need a little guidance to get me started, kind of like a tiny push when your on the swing to get you going, examples would be great thanks, the max resolution I am getting right now is 1600x1200, which makes people's faces in pictures look fat because it stretches. I backed up my XORG.CONF so yeah..:

    # xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
    #
    # This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
    # values from the debconf database.
    #
    # Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
    # (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
    #
    # This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
    # if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
    # package.
    #
    # Note that some configuration settings that could be done previously
    # in this file, now are automatically configured by the server and settings
    # here are ignored.
    #
    # If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
    # again, run the following command:
    # sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Configured Video Device"
    EndSection

    Section "Monitor"
    Identifier "Configured Monitor"
    EndSection

    Section "Screen"
    Identifier "Default Screen"
    Monitor "Configured Monitor"
    Device "Configured Video Device"
    EndSection

    If you did backup your xorg.conf go ahead, use Google and play around a bit.

    Search harder.

    It took me 10 seconds to come up with something about what you want to achieve.
    And there is so much more information and pointers out there.
