    [ubuntu] Re: New Monitor, Now I Can't See Desktop

    Well, it's been 3 days now, and nothing seems to be wrong after I copied and pasted Parted Magic's xorg.conf file into my desktop computer's xorg.conf file.

    Anyone think that copying the xorg.conf from another distro will work? Like partedmagic?

    I don't have it in front of me right this minute, but I know the graphics card is an ATI X300. Going on 4 years old now.

    [ubuntu] Re: New Monitor, Now I Can't See Desktop

    Unfortunately, I did reboot and used the recovery mode. xfix did not do anything. It came up with some text but was too fast for me to write down.

    Anything else?

    Yes, I can get to a terminal on the desktop. I just can't see it.

    I'll try the ctrl+alt+F1 to see if I can get a straight CLI working.

    [ubuntu] Re: Wireless Card Houdini

    Should be. It uses the network but doesn't control the network to my knowledge. Network Manager does that and it uses the Restricted Driver for the B43xx chipset. Completely unrelated. So, should be.

    Look in /usr/local/bin

    I think that's where they are. Might be a little different for each application though. Anyone else want to correct that if I'm wrong, be my guest.
