Actually this is something that I have in my Scripter's Scrapbook (not Linux
though):

Mac OS 9
----------
Using Jon's Commands to change screen resolutions in OS 9:

Mac OS X
-----------
The place to download 'cscript', a command-line utility for OS X that can
retrieve info about screens and to change their properties (including
reolution):

or to directly download 'cscript':

Windows
----------
You can use one of three third-party command line executables ("MultiRes",
"Resolution Changer", or "VidRes"):
