It seems xubuntu won't be able to correctly set resolution at 640*480@60Hz at its Display settings. And I am unable to correctly my super small 6.4 inch Mitsubishi VGA panel via VGA cable.

I have tried to hack both X11 conf /etc/X11/Xorg.conf and xfce4 conf, but all the document I can find is outdated. and conf files are changed into other location.

Can someone give me a hand and I'll mark correct for other people to use? Thanks!

EDIT: The board is an Intel Atom D2700, gpu is SGX545.

I tried to use xrandr --output default --mode 640*480 It seems works fine, but refresh rate is 75Hz, but the screen only suports 60Hz

So I used xrandr --output default --mode 640*480 --rate 60 but it give error:

xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default

Can anyone pointing any directions?

Try xrandr --output default --mode 640*480 60. This worked for me, at least until the reboot.

Welcome to Super User! Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. –  Canadian Luke Nov 16 '12 at 21:14

You can use ARandR, you can easily change your resolution using that. Instructions are available here.

that's not xubuntu's default (xfce) desktop, I suspect that tool might not be available (at least by default)... –  nonchip Jul 14 at 0:36
