But here's the devil in the details..

Since in their 'wisdom' Ubuntu devs removed the dpgk configuration
scripts that created those sections for you, users are left at the mercy
of displayconfig.  Almost all threads I've seen that require this also
need some further hand editing of the file to get the desired result......

Ugly.. very very ugly.

I wonder is someone with more time and knowledge than me would be able
to somehow port the scripts that dpgk-reconfigure in debian uses, as a
fall back for the times auto-detection is unsatisfactory?
