Bug Description

When Ubuntu boots, grub, plymouth is properly aligned. When it gets to the login screen it is shifted to the left about an inch. autorest on the monitor does nothing. Manually adjusting the screen does not work because it turns out the login screen is too wide, and that messes up the alignment after you log in. and when you login the the alignment returns to normal. Strangely when I login to a kde session the issue disappears until I log into unity/gnome session again.

My login screen is improperly aligned too, as it seems are any sessions for the Guest user. Other users whether admins or standard have correctly aligned desktops.

I cannot save any new settings for the Guest user, it reverts back to 1024 x 768 from 1360 x 768 each time.

The alignment of my login screen is approx 1 inch to the right of the left edge and 1 inch below the top edge, this is true for the guest user too.
