Ubuntu 7.04 Video Drivers Irritation

If you aren't an Ubuntu Linux user, this entry will be irrelevant. For many of you, it will be, "Huh?"

The Linux box that I use for backing up all the PCs around here updated to Ubuntu release 7.04--and someone decided not to support any of the "proprietary" video drivers. So the only mode that it came up in was standard VGA--or 640x480. Yuck!

The instructions on how to fix this are to open a shell, and run this:

sudo apt-get install xorg-driver-fglrx
That will step you through the selection of the appropriate drivers for your Linux PC.
