Can someone tell me how to set a permanent custom screen resolution in Linux Mint 11. I would like to use a screen resolution of 1280×800. I have searched but can’t seem to find an answer to this. Thanks.

The resolutions supported by your monitor should be available from the “Resolution” dropdown menu.
It SHOULD, but it doesn’t. Mine only has 1024×768 as a max resolution, where as I should have 1440 available.

Start the screen resolution tool from Menu > Preferences > Monitors.
The resolutions supported by your monitor should be available from the “Resolution” dropdown menu. On mine, there is a 1280×960 and 1280×1024, but no 1280×800.
If it is available in yours, select it, then click on the Apply button. If the result looks right, accept it and if you wish to make it the default, click on the Make Default button.
Close the tool.
