OK, I give up :o

Did you say you'd like 2 desktop icons to switch between 1024.x768 and 1024x600 ?

OK, we're going to add 2 menu items in the "System Tools" menu .. and copy them to the desktop if you wish.

Run:
Code:
sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/resolution-1024x768.desktop

When a BLANK file opens, make it read:-
Code:
[Desktop Entry]
Name=Resolution 1024x768
Comment=Change resolution to 1024x768
Exec=xrandr --output LVDS-0 --panning "1024x768" --scale "1x1.28"
Icon=video-display
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Categories=GNOME;System;Filesystem;Settings;

SAVE the file, and exit gedit.

Back in the terminal run:
Code:
sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/resolution-1024x600.desktop

When a BLANK file opens, make it read:-
Code:
[Desktop Entry]
Name=Resolution 1024x600
Comment=Change resolution to 1024x600
Exec=xrandr --output LVDS-0 --panning "1024x600" --scale "1x1"
Icon=video-display
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Categories=GNOME;System;Filesystem;Settings;

SAVE the file, and exit gedit.

You should now have 2 new entries in your menu at -

menu > System Tools > Resolution 1024x768
and
menu > System Tools > Resolution 1024x600

=======================================================

If you also want them on your desktop, run:
Code:
cp -v /usr/share/applications/resolution-1024x768.desktop ~/Desktop/

and
Code:
cp -v /usr/share/applications/resolution-1024x600.desktop ~/Desktop/
