Your answer doesn't explain the cause of my current problem but provides a fine alternative solution that I want to implement. Thank you!

There's a program that generates these and can be run on the local computer? How cool is that! I'll never not be surprised by the versatility of Linux :D

comment How can I set default terminal used in Unity?
For the sake of completeness (and because I messed up) -- how do I restore the default value after using this?

Just that command, or the entire script? Would you mind trying the script?

comment To install Wine, remove graphics driver - wut?
Yes it is supported (good point). I was aware not to do both variants but I might have skipped some parts of chapter 3.1 so I am re-doing the guide now.

comment To install Wine, remove graphics driver - wut?
I have followed this guide and my output of fglrxinfo gives the result indicated in the page (step 8). However, in Settings > Details > Overview, "Graphics" is still listed as "VESA: -100" -- not what I expected, even after installing hardware acceleration.

Thank you @PranavMarathe, I followed these instructions but still causes the fglrx drivers to be removed (screenshot) - I didn't go through with it.

comment To install Wine, remove graphics driver - wut?
@PranavMarathe I spent days getting the display to work and I'm worried I might not be able to get it right again - so I would really prefer a solution that doesn't remove my graphics drivers. (Why is graphics support so damn hard in Linux??!)

comment How to install proprietary ATI/AMD drivers on 14.10?
@DanW thanks for the reminder, but sadly it didn't work for me. What worked was a magic combination of removing various X and ATI components. Now I'm only using Ubuntu built-in material (which curiously didn't work out of the box!).

@JYelton the link is another answer here on this very site, written by me. If that dies, then by all likelihood this one won't be around either ;-)
