You can find it in /user/share/X11/ If there is no xorg.conf file there, feel free to create one. In some cases xorg.conf is not needed.

I realize that this thread is pretty much dead, but I found some information that may help any future visitors who come here as I did in a desperate search for answers. I have a circa-2004 Dell Dimension 2400 I really wanted to install Linux on for a client, and was about to give up - esp. after reading numerous posts like this - when I decided to give ...

I had the same issue. Upgrading the Intel graphics driver fixed this issue (among other things): sudo add-apt-repository ppa:oibaf/graphics-drivers sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade Then reboot. You can read detailed explanations on my blog. Regards,

I'm experiencing similar issues. I have noticed that this occurs if I use xrandr's --auto option or set mode to resolution other than that set in "display" settings panel before configuring xrandr. I am using a startup script to set xrandr when I log in: xrandr --output VGA-0 --left-of DVI-0 try replacing "VGA-0" and "DVI-0" with whatever your hardware's ...

I cant see a command, but this answer may help. Quoted here. For Nvidia based cards of all varieties I would have gone straight to the Nvidia website rather than the reseller (EVGA, XFX or whoever) and checked out the specifications of the card there. Picking one at random the Geforce GTX 570 specifications page immediately lists the maximum ...

The issue with the touchpad is caused by the trusty and utopic kernels not fully supporting it. Full support for that touchpad is available in kernel 4.0+ so I would recommend downloading and installing the latest stable kernel (currently 4.0.3) onto your system and testing it out, it works flawlessly on my UX303LAB laptop. mkdir /tmp/kernel-mainline_4.0.3 ...

as others have posted, for an Intel processor you need the amd64 version of the iso file. I suspect that your problem is elsewhere though. When I used Pendrivelinux, I was able to create the image, but it didn't boot. Try using UNetbootin to burn your image to USB. Pendrivelinux creates a boot system that boots and then loads the image, but UNetbootin ...

64bit CPU architecture was created by AMD. Hence it is called AMD64. AMD64 is just the name of the standard. It doesn't mean it only available for AMD CPUs. Intel CPUs fully support 64bit architecture. Download the Ubuntu Disk Image. (Get 15.04 from here) Get a disk Image to USB writer software for Windows: http://sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/ ...

The AMD64 in the version just means that that version is meant to be run on a x86-64 architecture, which is the 64 bit extension of the x86 32-bit architecture, and all the Intel and the AMD consumer 64-bit desktop CPUs are x86-64. So as long as you have an Intel 64-bit desktop CPU, the AMD64 version is the correct version for your system.

For compatible processors, by default Ubuntu now uses the intel_pstate CPU frequency governor, whereas it used to use the acpi_cpufreq CPU frequncy governor. The intel_pstate drive does not have ondemand mode, but its powersave mode should be the equivalent of the acpi_cpufreq ondemand mode. Your system should default to powersave mode about 1 minute after ...

I have set it in .bashrc as an alias (and as root), because I experienced similar problems. The aliases look like this: alias performance="echo performance > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor" alias powersave="echo powersave > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor" alias ondemand="echo ondemand > ...
