I have a Chromebook, and I recently installed the Linux (Beta) feature Chrome OS has, where you can have Linux running alongside Chrome OS.

It all works very well, except for one thing: that the screen resolution is not correct, with all my Linux apps showing up as very zoomed in.

I looked online, and the only options I could find were creating a new resolution with CVT and using xrandr.

But my Linux comes up with an error every time I use that command, which I'm pretty sure should be built-in. I'm pretty new to Linux, so could someone tell me what I am doing wrong, or maybe how to do it without CVT? I feel like I'm missing something extremely simple here.
