I wanted to check something using 12.04 but didn't select it before grub
default booted to 14.04 and to my surprise I have my graphical 14.04
back. It is running the nouveau driver, which is not ideal but it works.
I have 2 monitors, the left hand one is a HP w2338h which is running
1920 x 1080 (16:9) and the right hand one is a Hannspree only running at
its reported max of 1024 x 768 (4:3). when I was using the Nvidia
drivers it also was able to run at 1920 x 1080. The Hannspree is shown
as unknown display in the All Settings-->Displays and it was also shown
that way using the Nvidia drivers.
I remember I had a hard time getting it to display at the higher
resolution when I installed 14.04 though it was fine under 12.04. I
think all I did was copy some kind of x config file from 12.04 to 14.04
but I'll look into that later.
Ralf, I want to thank you and tell you how much I appreciate all the
help you have given getting this resolved.
