To install Ubuntu 18.04 I followed my own blog post (but used a Ubuntu 18.04 boot stick instead):

To set the custom resolutions I followed this guide:

My settings are:

xrandr --newmode "1280x850_60.00"   88.75  1280 1352 1480 1680  850 853 863 883 -hsync +vsync

xrandr --newmode "1536x1020_60.00"  129.75  1536 1632 1792 2048  1020 1023 1033 1058 -hsync +vsync

xrandr --addmode eDP-1 1280x850_60.00

xrandr --addmode eDP-1 1536x1020_60.00
