View Full Version : [ubuntu_studio] Messed up xorg with ATI binary X.Org driver

I used the Add/Remove Package Manager to install ATI binary X.Org driver. That was the wrong driver for my ATI card. I didn't know that when I installed it. Now when I try to boot up ubuntustudio 9.04 I can't get to the login screen. I get a message telling me xorg isn't set up right and it disables xorg so all I get now is text on the monitor.

Are there any commands I can use to restore the original xorg files/settings so I can boot into the ubuntustudio desktop again or do I have to reinstall ubuntustudio 9.04?

Thankx for any help.

I looked at tons of pages about xorg and ATI but I couldn't wait to figure this one out so I reinstalled ubuntustudio. Everything is working again.
