Yes, here's how I do it using OpenSUSE Tumbleweed.
1. Go to the system settings menu (this can easily be found in the
whisker menu or in the right-click menu on the desktop.
2. Go to "Display"
3. Select your desired resolution from the dropdown
4. Click "apply"
From this point, Xfce should dictate your screen resolution every time
it starts.
