Ubuntu completely failed to detect my monitor on installation. The main
problem this caused was limiting me to 60hz. I have now solved this by
manually editing my xorg.conf although I am worried this is only a fudge and

However, I was a bit surprised that ubuntu didn't id the monitor as mdk 10 did
so and the monitor is only 3-4 years old. Ubuntu seems to have a good
reputation for hardware detection and I am wondering whether there is a way I
can report its failure to detect my monitor so it can be added to the ubuntu
hardware detect in future?
If there was a list of unsupported hardware established not only would it give
a resource to ubuntu for future releases but it would help users who have the
