    [SOLVED]Lubuntu video help

    I like Lubuntu 11.04 and keep it on a usb as a portable system. With 11.10 I had the same problem with all the buntus, it broke my video. Everything else worked fine, but after trying several things my video remained slow and choppy. But perfect with 11.04

    Lubuntu video help

    What do I run in the terminal to find that? I'm sure I've seen it but I forget.
    I tried the flash-aid and other suggestions. It was suggested to me that my card might have been blacklisted.

    But, why do you have two display devices?

    Yes, thanks!

    Re:video not sure why it would list 2 devices. It is a netbook Acer Aspire One D255E and as I mentioned, video works perfectly on the 11.04 buntus, but is slow and choppy on the 11.10 buntus. I installed flash-aid on firefox and tried several things but nothing helped. My concern is that I would like to use the LTS release next spring but if Ubuntu has done something to blacklist my video or the kernal has changed something I will be stuck at 11.04 on this netbook.
