    Although how can i save this so it will be there after boot time. Once i restart the machine its gone. I would like to keep this saved.

    well i have to figure that out. what i have done is i have made a file with a compact name like "res" and pasted following code in this file

    xrandr --newmode "1368x768_60.00" 85.86 1368 1440 1584 1800 768 769 772 795 -HSync +Vsync

    xrandr --addmode VGA1 1368x768_60.00

    xrandr --output VGA1 --mode 1368x768_60.00

    saved this file in /home/myname

    now everytime i start my computer i open terminal --> type ./res

    and theres my required resolution.

    i am not making and editing xorg.conf file because i did it once and my computer was stuck on boot up.
    so am happy with this procedure
