I recently got ASUS Eee Netbook R051PX, nice little machine, however small annoyance it has when plugged to projectors for presentation is that the default mirrored resolution is just 800×600, the gnome-display-properties does not allow the selection of 1024×768, xrandr comes to the rescue:
Run the following as normal user in terminal to get the required resolution.
xrandr --output LVDS1 --panning 1024x768
xrandr --output VGA1 --mode 1024x768
Note: just in case wordpress eats up – character, there are 2 – before output, panning and mode.
