How to boot an Ubuntu 12.10 without Monitor/Keyboard/Mouse I'm using as server and connect to it through Remote desktop viewer

No problem with 12.04 but after the upgrade I receive the message Low Graphic or monitor not detected

What I have found as workaround, but when I plug a screen there is no more image

  1. Install dummy monitor

    sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-dummy
  2. Backup xorg.conf

    sudo  mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.bak
  3. Create a new xorg.conf

    sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
