I have an /etc/X11/xorg.conf now and technically it works OK, and after
the edits to xorg.conf flash works OK too. But there's a problem: If I
normally boot into Xubuntu ( I have it set to boot immediately to the
Desktop - not a log in prompt) I get all black with a cursor, but if I
move the mouse around over the broken desktop the expected desktop
begins to partially appear, it's enough for me to restart X (actually I
reset the keyboard so alt-del-backspace restarts X) then after
restarting X it goes to a lightDm login prompt, after doing this login a
good desktop appears with working flash.

But other users use this PC and I can't give the the password to re
login. I'd like to fix it so it logs in normally as expected. So this
issue happens when there's a good working  /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Grateful
for help.
