When you get an error about these like;

W: GPG error: lucid Release: The following signatures couldn’t be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

(X’s are characters in the lines), put these lines to the terminal;

gpg --keyserver --recv XXXXXXXX 
(These X's are the last eight character in the above error)
gpg --export --armor XXXXXXXX | sudo apt-key add - 
(These X's are the last eight character in the above error)

Monitor Resolution Correction

Leave a comment

If you connect your laptop or netbook to a monitor in ubuntu, resolution may be in lower rift, but you can correct this value by typing

xrandr –output VGA1 –auto
xrandr –output LVDS1 –off –output VGA1 –mode 1152×864 (Example)
xrandr –output LVDS1–off –output VGA1 –mode 1280×1024 (Example)

So you can reach the correct resolution to solve this problem in an easy manner.
