Change screen resolution

Linux (Ubuntu) Add comments

My Ubuntu 8.04 server was connected to a KVM and automatic detection defaulted to 800×600 resolution, making it impossible to even see complete dialog boxes when administring the server. Going to the Screen Resolution option didn’t give me any options to change it.
I found this command that will launch a monitor selection config screen where you are able to select something like Generic LCD 1024×768:

gksudo displayconfig-gtk
