    Wrong Resolution


    Hello. I have a problem with the resolution on my Arch Linux installation. I have installed xorg and ran it, then checked if my resolution is 1440x900, which is my native resolution.

    I tried xrandr, added a new mode

    Code:
    xrandr --newmode "1440x900_60.00"   106.50    1440 1528 1672 1904 900 903 909 934 -hsync +vsync
    I tried making and configuring .xconf, with no luck. I also tried making and configuring /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-monitor.conf, and also tried generating that file, with also no luck. I don't know what else to do. Any ideas?

    Most likely its a problem with your graphics drivers, but you also may need to install a desktop environment or a window manager.
    If its on a virtual machine, you will most likely have to install the tools (like vmware-tools on VMWare Player). Linux is generally quite good at figuring the resolution for your machine except on virtual machines for some reason.
