Which Cinnamon are you using? LM13, LM14, LMDE Cinnamon? 32-bit or 64-bit? nVidia, ATI, Intel graphics, or other? Proprietary or Open-source driver?AbnerC wrote:I followed all this to the letter and now both panels have reset to a lower white panel. I tried going into Cinnamon Settings but it is on Classic panel layout, even if I change it the changes can't be seen. I tried inputting ALT+F2 to restart cinnamon and now I get the Run Application instead of the screen going black. Any help on this? Is there any way to rollback what I had?

Background: When I installed Mint 14 (Nadia) it could not detect my monitor and defaulted to 1024x800 (4:3). It would not detect my 1600x900 dell monitor with vga connector (the only wire provided).
Solution: I followed the instructions in this post on Ubuntu Geek: http://www.ubuntugeek.com/how-change-display-resolution-settings-using-xrandr.html with the modifications in the notes, below.
Notes: Mint 14 uses MDM (Mint Display Manager), not gdm or kdm, so to make the changes persist the file to edit is /etc/mdm/Init/Default. An easy way to do this is to navigate to the file using Nemo (the MInt file manager), then right-click on the file and select open as root. Now when you double-click on the file it will open for editing in gedit. Add the lines as described in the Ubuntu Geek post, save and reboot.
When the computer restarts you should notice the splash screen is at the correct resolution but when you login you will have the old setting. To fix this, go to prefences, displays and you should now be able to select your prefered resolution. This should now persist whenever you login. Other users will need to change their resoltion, when they next login. (If anyone can improve on this, please post below.)
