Goodday to all of you,
Currently I'm experiencing something rather annoying on my laptop. At the moment I got it installed as a dual-boot system with FC6 on one partition and Ubuntu on the other. For some dark, obscure, and I'm sure evil as well reason I can't set the resolution.
I'm trying to set it to 1024x768, which is its highest resolution. In the GUI I select the generic LCD monitor, set the right resolution. To be sure I take a look at the xorg.conf, and I think: "Victory!"
All is set as it should be, so I reboot.
When it start up again, it's still set at 800x600. So once logged in I go to Preferences / Screenresolution.
Only options are 800x600 or 640x480.
So I check the xorg.conf, and everything is as it was last time I checked:
Identifier "Generic LCD Monitor"
Identifier "ATI Technologies, Inc. Radeon Mobility M6 LY [Radeon Mobility 9000]"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Device "ATI Technologies, Inc. Radeon Mobility M6 LY [Radeon Mobility 9000]"
Monitor "Generic LCD Monitor"
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
So why don't I get my precious 1024x768 resolution? Does some have an idea on what I am missing? Clearly, unless you are as visually challenged as three blind mice you don't really want 800x600 resolution.
Any help would be welcome.
btw. If I boot with Ubuntu it starts just fine in the right resolution.
