ubuntu 10.4 display settings

In Ubuntu 10.4 Lucid Lynx, if someone need to change the display settings, you may find useful the /etc/vga/libvga.config file .

In fact, in version 10.04, /etc/X11/xorg.conf no longer exists, but resolution is defined in libvga.config , with also settings for mouse and keybord.

For example, my resolution i defined as

# Monitor type:

# VertRefresh min_Hz max_Hz
