    Screen Resolution


    I recently downloaded ubuntu and was wondering how to increase my resolution. I remember with fedora I typed something like "setup-display-config" in the terminal and it came up with configuration stuff, but I'm wondering if someone can guide me through in simple terms how to do this since I'm pretty new with linux.

    Code:
    $sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
    would be Ubuntu's equivalent to
    Code:
    $system-config-display
    in Fedora. You can just select the defaults until you get to the resolution section.

    I tried but when it finished it said that couldn't generate the configuration file because it might overwrite a customized file.
