$ xrandr --output default --mode 800x600
xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default

xrandr, gnome-display-settings and nvidia-settings work for me.

Resolution cycling works using each of:
* xrandr --mode ...
* nvidia-settings
* gnome-display-properties

xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default

Worked for me using:
xrandr --output default --mode 1024x768
and then back to:
xrandr --output default --mode 1920x1080

I also get:
xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default

xrandr says:
xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default

but the switching succeeds.

Works even with NVIDIA X Server Settings.
