    Default Help! Display stuck in 800x600!


    I've always had 1024x768 display and I was playing around with the
    refresh rate in "Configure Desktop"->"Display" and chose "Auto". Now I
    can't undo the "Auto", and I can't change either the refresh rate or the
    Screen size!

    In X11 Configuration GUI, it still says 1024x768, but the screen is
    showing as 800x600. What's wrong? how do I change this?

    What does 'xrandr -q' report? Mine for reference:

    > dean@linux:~> xrandr -q
    > Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1280 x 800, maximum 1280 x 800
    > default connected 1280x800+0+0 0mm x 0mm
    > 1280x800 60.0*
    > 1024x768 60.0
    > 800x600 60.0
    > 640x480 60.0
    > 960x600 60.0
    > 768x480 60.0
    > 640x400 60.0
    > 640x350 60.0
    > 512x384 60.0
    > 400x300 60.0
    > 320x240 60.0
    > 320x200 60.0
    >


    Try setting one of the available modes with something like this:

    xrandr -s 1024x768 -r 60.0

    These commands should work as regular user. See how that goes.

    Thanks. I already got it back up by resetting a third time through X11,
    logging out/back in and then resizing the taskbar. Let's hope it holds
    up through the next restart.

    One question, when I do the xrandr command, it has an asterisk next to
    one of the refresh rates. What does that mean?
