I've spent way too much time on this than I care to admit; I'm new in the Linux world, and I installed Ubuntu 9.04 on a new virtual machine. My problem is getting the screen resolution I would like - 1920x1200. I have tried multiple, multiple different ways of editing the xorg.conf file, and nothing seems to work.
Can anyone provide, or link to, explicit step by step instructions (explanation would be great too). Please do not Google search and provide me with the first link, I've gone through all of these. Other questions: since it is a VM, do I need to worry about any drivers whatsoever? What about having it recognize my video card, etc?
