I installed ubuntu and the resolution of the desktop is so big that it only shows about 50% of the screen, but is shows up normal while using command line.
Tell me the easiest way to change the resolution of your desktop?
This worked for me
Name all your video outputs and possible resolutions for the ones currently connected to the monitor
Tell me the name of the output you wish to change and
xrandr --output <OUTPUT> --mode 1024x768
Note: If running from a text terminal, that is not running in gfx environment, you'll have to add a
-d :0 parameter, i.e.
xrandr -d :0 -q xrandr -d :0 --output <OUTPUT> --mode 1024x768
