In a terminal window run this command:
- this will edit your I/O configurations; scroll down towards the bottom where you'll see a section like this:
Device "NVIDIA GeForce 4 (generic)"
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
- see that "Default Depth"
section ? Make sure that the immediately following SubSection "Display" (where you see the "Modes") has the "1024x768" parameter added in front of all the others (just like in the example above).
- when you add this parameter, make sure you leave a space between it and the following.
- immediately after the "Default Depth" section you should see other sections listed. Play with them, and you will notice how you will enable/disable monitor resolution options when you use the GDM from the start menu.
Depth of 16 means 16-bit colors;
Depth of 24 means 24-bit colors;
Depth of 32 means 32-bit colors can be displayed;
Let us know how it turns out.
