Ubuntu 7.04 Really Wrong Screen Resolution
I've installed 7.04 into an old pc I built.
It unfortunately set the screen resolution to 1280x1024 instead of 1680x1050.
It has a a radeon rv100 qy 7000/ve video card and I tried to get it to work.
I went to 'Debugging Xautoconfiguration' page and came across a bit of a brick wall.
It said " sudo mv /etc/xorg.conf /etc/xorg.
But what is that?
I managed to figure out I needed to open a terminal after hours of research and type it in.
Then it returned an error of file not found.
A few hours later I managed to figure out it actually meant /etc/X11/
Then the instructions said "restart X" (Huh??? what is that? Who writes this crap?
After a few more hours I discovered I need to simply press Ctrl-Alt-backspace . Gosh WHY couldn't it just say that!!!
I did that and now my LCD screen states it can't display the screen mode and I should change it.
So I'm stuck. I can't change what I can't see.
I'm typing this in a Internet cafe.
What can I do now to recover my PC?
I thought Ubuntu was suppose to be easy! I guess I fell for the line 'It just works'.... :-((
I've tried and tried to progress with this OS. But its been brick wall after brick wall with the official documentation.
Can you Ubuntu guys spend some time on it?
I'm really down atm....so excuse me...
