Are you trying to set the resolution in the System Settings | Displays applet as if using the nvidia driver you should use the nvidia-settings tool to select the resolution and save to xorg.conf?
My monitor ahs a default setting of 1600x1200.
In windows I use 1280x1024, which i would like to get in mint, but cannot discover how to do it.
The nvidia settings for mint do not offer these settings.
I've installed xrander, but am unable to make any changes through it.
Do I need to save the xrander --newmode settings to xorg.conf in order to activate them?
Thanks in advance for your help.
