If configuring this via X doesn't work, there's always xrandr
which you can call from your ~/.xinitrc (or ~/.xsession
respectively), like this:

	xrandr --fb 1920x1080
	xrandr --size 1920x1080

I'm using this method since X.org can't get my CRT working at
the desired mode 1400x1050 (which XFree86 perfectly did) and
insists on running the insufficent mode 1152x864 only. :-)
