HOW TO SET RESOLUTION VIA TERMINAL IN UBUNTU

There is a very nice way of handling resolution in linux OS via terminal....
First of all open your terminal and run this command--

xrandr

After executing this command you will be able to see the different resolution settings.This is what i get after executing this command--

Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1280 x 800, maximum 8192 x 8192

                       
Now, if you want to change your resolution then just type this command--

xrandr -s (size-index)

Example- xrandr -s 0 (for 1280*800)
                xrandr -s 1 (for 1024*768)

  1. That command worked, but once I restarted my computer everything zoomed in again. Is there a way to save this setting?
