    Default Screen Resolution MacBook Pro 8,1

    So I went through the trouble of install BackTrack 5 on my MacBook with a dual boot. Spent a good 8 hours working out the kinks that are involved in that. After I managed to successfully boot into BackTrack and got the wireless drivers to function I noticed that the screen resolution was stuck at 1024x768. I cannot change that to the native 1200x800 resolution that I was used to in OS X. Is there a somewhat simple way of changing the display resolution?

    Default Re: Screen Resolution MacBook Pro 8,1

    So managed to fix my issue by following http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...ad.php?t=48904

    My next question is how do I change a color profile? I installed the color profiles menu

    Code:
    apt-get install gnome-color-manager

    Normally I would be able to import my color profile from (Macintosh HD/Library/ColorSync/Displays/something.icc) but when I do that nothing happens. It says Unknown monitor. How do I get it to recognize the monitor and allow me to install the profile?
