    Catalyst, from what I've seen (Via's driver did similar to me) does not respect each and every entry in xorg.conf

    Aaaah... Ok, ok, sorry, I didn't get it!

    Well, now I think your best bet to "solve" your problem is to run your Ubuntu in runlevel 3 (console mode, NOT recovery mode), remove the amdpcsdb file by typing "sudo rm -rf /etc/ati/amdpcsdb", (you can see how to do it here), and do a "sudo aticonfig --initial", to generate a "clean" xorg.conf file...

    If you want to try it, it's up to you now...
    From now on, I can't help you anymore... I don't have no more ideas...

    Cheers

    But ubuntu/debian use the same runlevel settings from 2 to 5. You have to stop gdm or kdm directly.

    Thanks for the tip Kano...
    I didn't know about it... (I don't use debian/ubuntu for some years... )

    Cheers

    p.s. The arch wiki link I posted has the same tip as that you've posted...
