my login window resolution is still the same

Bug #294482 reported by manzur on 2008-11-06
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

Binary Package Hint: xorg

when i change my screen resolution it is changed but my login window resolution is not changed, after having changed it, and once the system is restarted, my login screen continues with the resolution it was before and once I enter the screen resolution is automatically changed by the one that i selected earlier, what I mean is that now my desktop screen and my login screen, have two separate resolutions because it only applies to my desktop screen and not for the login window too, why?, please fix it!!!

if you need more details please ask for it!

Yes, I understand exactly what you are talking about.

This is not really a bug. In order to fix your problem, follow the instructions here:

Basically, you're going to add in a default display resolution into you xorg.conf file, and your login screen will abide by the default setting you give it. In your case it would look something like this:

Section "Screen"
 Identifier "Default Screen"
 Monitor "Configured Monitor"
 Device "Configured Video Device"

        SubSection "Display"
                Modes "1024x768"

Where is says "1024x768", insert your desired monitor resolution.
I am Setting the status of this to invalid. Please check to see if your issues have already been answered before reporting a bug. Thanks for helping to make Ubuntu better!

but tell me something, why isn't this automatically done, when i change my screen resolution?

James, this shouldn't be the solution in my opinion. A solution for this bug is an option somewhere to keep the screen resolution the same or don't even ask and do it automatically (like manzur suggests), not adding some lines in a configuration file!
