    Why can’t I get the right screen resolution in Ubuntu?

    searock

      Hi

      My screen resolution in windows and previous version of ubuntu (9.04)  was 1152 x 864.

      But in Ubuntu 10.04 it gives me an option of 1024 x 786 and 1360 x  786, how can I change it to 1152 x 864 ?

      Is there any way I can change my screen resolution to 1152 x 864 ?

      Thanks.

      Edit : I am sorry I forgot to mention my graphic  card details.
      It's Intel(R) 82945G Express Chipset Family.

      Edit 1 : This is what I have tried according to Matan Eldan.

      searock@searock-desktop:~$ cvt 1152   864

      1152x864 59.96 Hz (CVT 1.00M3) hsync:   53.78 kHz; pclk: 81.75 MHz Modeline "1152x864_60.00"   81.75  1152  1216   1336 1520  864 867 871 897 -hsync   +vsync

      searock@searock-desktop:~$ xrandr   --newmode "1152x864_60.00"   81.75  1152 1216 1336 1520  864 867 871  897   -hsync +vsync

      searock@searock-desktop:~$ xrandr   --addmode S-video 1152x864
      xrandr: cannot find output "S-video"

      Then I tried executing xrandr command and it  displays the resolution but I think I can't add it to the output.
