Its NVidia and I dont know if its a proprietary driver. How do you
switch drivers? What is XORG.CONF? How do you get to it?

Hi Kelly,

I'm sending this to the Ubuntu list as well.

Do you know what kind of video card you have?  If it's NVidia or ATI,
are you using the proprietary driver?

If it was working in Fiesty, your issue should be pretty easy to
straighten out - you might just need to switch drivers in your
xorg.conf file...
