    Xrandr Not All Resolutions Seen


    So I have two monitors, a laptop monitor and an lcd which I use as a second screen when my laptop is docked, and I'm able to set it up with xrandr to set it up to work fine-ish. The code I use is
    Code:
    xrandr --output VGA --right-of LVDS --mode 1024x768
    And it works, and my monitor is now right of the laptop screen. The problem I'm having is when I do xrandr -q to find out what all the resolutions are for the VGA I don't see the highest one of 1280x1024 instead I see:
    Code:
    VGA connected 1024x768+1280+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 338mm x 270mm
       1152x768       54.8  
       1024x768       60.0* 
       832x624        74.6  
       800x600        72.2     75.0     60.3     56.2  
       640x480        85.0     72.8     75.0     60.0  
       720x400        85.0  
       640x400        85.1  
       640x350        85.1
    Any ideas how I can get this up to the optimal resolution.?

    most of this problems are solved when you edit your xorg.conf file. Or you can try whith a program called X an then write to your xorg.conf file from there.

    I understand that, but that problem that I'm having is that I don't know what to edit because this isn't my main screen, rather it's a second screen that's only used some of the time.
