  1. The “Do not attempt these changes if you do not know what you are doing.” kills me every time. Cause honestly, I don’t know.

  2. doesn’t work with Ubuntu 8.10 😦

  3. Thanks a lot! My damn Unichrome card showed everything 1920×1440, while monitor is just 1024×768.
    A few minutes ago I at last saw what my login screen looks like!

    Thanx!!!
    Ubuntu 8.10

  4. It did work on 8.10 actually. Worked perfect. Fixed AMD 1.7 P4 board with an ATI Radeon 9250 128mb graphics card.

    But just remember to make that back up file. And as an extra precaution write the restore command provided down on paper incase all you can get is a text login.

  5. Maybe for those who had problems… make sure you copy the xorg.conf that he has above exactly, no extra spaces, and make sure if a line is tabbed in that you have it tabbed in. Follow instructions exactly.

  6. worked perfectly with Dell M992 and Hardy 8.04.
    Thanks.. that was making me crazy !

  7. Try this one
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
    from

  8. Worked like a charm. You are the Man.
