I have an installation of Ubuntu 9.10 where everything is fine except the video resolution. In Ubuntu 9.10, the file xorg.conf is empty by default.

I'm using an onboard video card, and Ubuntu can not find the right resolution for me. It always uses 800x600, but I need at least 1024x768. Also, my monitor is listed as Unknown Type.

Ubuntu did find the right resolution when I changed the monitor to a Samsung monitor.

What are the generic settings to put inside xorg.conf?
