Ubuntu, and many other Linux distros, don't use xorg.conf. If, for some reason, you want xorg.conf, it can be generated.

There is also not need to install Intel graphics drivers, as you probably know, Linux has most open source drivers already included.

In short, don't fix what's not broken. :~)


The only answer given is totally worthless. The question is asked because there is breakage, so flippantly saying "don't fix what's not broken" is silly at best.

Obviously the "autodetection" isn't working or else the question wouldn't have been asked!
