Change display resolution in Linux

Your Graphics Card support higher resolutions but your Linux distribution display is set to 800x600. You can change the resolution easily by following the below steps.


1. First check all the possible resolutions supported by your graphics card using the following command.

"xrandr"

It will display all possible resolutions like this.

Screen 0: minimum 400 x 300, current 1152 x 864, maximum 1152 x 864
default connected 1152x864+0+0 0mm x 0mm
1152x864 75.0* 70.0 60.0
1152x768 55.0
1024x768 85.0 75.0 70.0 60.0 87.0
832x624 75.0
800x600 85.0 75.0 72.0 60.0 56.0
640x480 85.0 75.0 73.0 67.0 60.0
720x400 70.0 85.0
640x400 85.0
640x360 85.0 75.0 70.0 60.0
640x350 85.0
512x384 87.0
416x312 75.0
400x300 85.0 75.0 72.0 60.0

The current selected resolution will have a * (asterix) next to it.


2. Change resolution.

Suppose your graphics card support 1024x768 resolution then you can change it using the following command.

"xrandr -s 1024x768"
