I changed the screen resolution on Ubuntu 12.08 using the GUI, but I think I've changed it to an unsupported resolution, and now the system logs me out immediately after I login. I tried using xrandr to fix it, but haven't had any progress yet. I can log in with the guest account though

What can I do to fix this?
