How can I change notebook (LVDS) resolution to 1024x768 and why Is not this resolution supported ???
So far i tried
Code:
xrandr --output LVDS -s 1024x768

but it just turn of/on external monitor and nothing happens. Also tried
Code:
xrandr --newmode "1024x768" 63.50  1024 1072 1176 1328  768 771 775 798 -hsync +vsync

with the same effect and getting error "BadName (named color or font does not exist)"

I am running xubuntu thank you

hello..
if you want to change the resolution then you better put a vga="blah blah" on the command line paramater in you grub.conf file or at the boot time edit the command line.
there are various values for resolutions . check a manual for it.
do the other monitor has a different resolution?
