Getting the resolution to be bigger (ATI RADEON)

October 11, 2007

I’m in the process of moving all my stuff over to Ubuntu. The screen resolution was capped at 1024 x 768, so for future reference…

..First check in the Restricted Drivers ( Systems -> Administration). The drivers for my card were sort of there, disabled, but enabling them didn’t change a thing.

… So I went to the manufacturer’s website (lspci to find details on the card), and there they were, drivers and very detailed instructions : http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubuntu_Feisty_Installation_Guide. Very nice and helpful, and most importantly, it worked! 🙂
