Intrepid screen resolution limited choices
I have read many different posts and have found nothing that will work.
I am also a first time user of this sort of OS.
I tried the FAQ "How to get better screen resolution" and got the following error when I typed "sudo apt-get install displayconfig-gtk".
ERROR: Reading package lists... Done

Package displayconfig-gtk is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package displayconfig-gtk has no installation candidate
I can only select 2 resolutions, 800x600 & 640x480 and my monitor shows as unknown.
I have downloaded the monitor driver files from AOC's website and extracted them to a desktop folder.
This is a new installation of Intrepid on a PC that had only a newly formatted HD and no other OS on it.
Right now because of the resolution, I can not view some whole windows such as Transmission BitTorrent Client.
