I am using the latest elementary OS build 0.3.2. I need a screen resolution of 1280x800_60.00. I can set the desired screen resolution using xrandr. This change is only temporary and disappears upon reboot. How do I set the 1280x800_60.00 screen resolution as permanent? I have searched the web and tried various suggestions for this with no success.
You can run the command each time you log in by adding it to
~/.profile. See this answer for more info.
I'm assuming here that this resolution doesn't appear in Display settings because it isn't a native resolution of your monitor. (If it does appear in display settings, using that would be the easiest way to make the change.)
