Re: enable 1024 x 768 display resolution?.

Is there an easy way to add display resolution 1024 x 768 to the
selectable choices from the screen resolution gui in Gnome?

When installing, I chose 800 x 600 as the maximum and default
resolution. This causes problems with some programs such as k3b and
kstars, which expect 1024 x 768 display resolution to use some of their
configuration screens. At 800 x 600, the bottom of said screen is not
displayed, including buttons like save/apply/cancel. Fun!

I suppose I could row through base-config to try to add it there, but I
I'd hate to trash something else in the process.

I am using Debian stable, Gnome desktop.
There are two ways:
# dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86
and choose your resolution when it ask for
or under
to support the resolution.
I hope this help.
