I recently installed Ubuntu 6.06 Linux. I also recently bought the AOC 193FWk, with a native resolution of 1440x900. My video card can support it, but Linux does not seem to be able to. I'm extremely new to Linux and Ihave no idea what to do.

Ubuntu has pretty good video card support, but no linux distro ships with the proprietary drivers from the card makers.

What kind of card do you have cause the best place to start is by installing the video drivers for your card.

I have the integrated chip that comes with the ASUS K8V-SE motherboard. I can't really afford a video card.

Umm, I looked up the K8V-SE online and it doesn't seem to have integrated video, are you sure?
