    Hey Guys! I'm newbie on linux, trying to learn everting to this OS...And a found this Distro, i'll give a try to use on my home PC (I'm using dual boot w/ Win10).

    But i got a issue, and i need a hand how to fix it!

    I have two monitors (primary on HDMI-0 and secondary on DVI port). Using Nvidia GTX 760 - already installed the drivers.

    My primary monitor, doesn't get the 1920x1080 resolution. I google it, trying to fix, and i found some things to do in the terminal...(xrandr and the others things with this commands).

    sudo xrandr --newmode "1920x1080_60.00" 173.00 1920 2048 2248 2576 1080 1083 1088 1120 -hsync +vsync

    And when i trying to create a new resolution on my monitor, the terminal return this:

    X Error of failed request: BadName (named color or font does not exist) Major opcode of failed request: 140 (RANDR) Minor opcode of failed request: 16 (RRCreateMode) Serial number of failed request: 39 Current serial number in output stream: 39

    I don't know what to do....Can someone help me?

    Ps. Sorry for my bad English too!
