Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron has many new improvements, enhancements and features but what good are they if you can’t see your screen properly. The screen resolution is always a concern while setting up a new operating system. The resolution setup may vary for different graphics cards and their drivers. Upon opening the Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron desktop select the Gnome main menu by clicking on System — Preferences — Screen Resolution.
Each user is allowed to have a separate resolution that fits their individual needs so no root password is needed to change this or for other items in the “Preferences” menu. Selecting Screen Resolution from the menu brings you to the Monitor Resolution Settings window. Here you can manually adjust the resolution, refresh rate rotation, or select the detect displays button to have Ubuntu automatically detect your display settings.
