Ati Radeon 9000 video card

Specs: Ubuntu 9.10 x64, 1.8 GHZ/1 GB
Hey guys,

Ok, I have got the desktop effects working after figuring out how to enable ATI Radeon drivers on Ubuntu. Now I need to change my resolution. When I go System>Preferences>Display It allows me to change my resolution. It is currently set at 1024x768 while I want it to go to 1152x864. I don't see my prefered resolution listed. My monitor is a Royal Information Company 16". Any help is appreciated and if anybody needs to know more information about anything, please feel free to ask me.

Did you install the ATI binary X.Org driver from Ubuntu Software Center > System Tools?

I can find very little info about Royal Information Company. Is it an LCD or CRT monitor? What is it's native resolution?

Thanks much for your reply. It's a CRT from 1999. It still works good. I thinks the native res. it 1152x864 but I'm not positive either. It looks perfect in that res. though.

If it's a CRT, any 4:3 resolution will look good...it's a matter of personal preference. If you installed the ATI binary X.Org driver, all supported resolutions will be in the drop down menu.

I'll stick with it if I have to. It just looks so different compared to my Windows OS. Thanks.
