Screen Resolution Bug and Ubuntu Trusty

Watch out for this little screen resolution and driver bug in current video drivers for Ubuntu based systems

 Are you running Linux Mint, Ubuntu Trusty or similar based OS ? Did you install the latest AMD drivers or NVIDIA ?  Can't seem to get your resolution to stick after reboot ?

For some reason the location of the xorg.conf file has changed.  Seems the NVIDIA and AMD Video tools write to /etc/X11/xorg.conf, which is overwritten on boot by Ubuntu based OS's .

The fix is quite easy which is just to move the xorg.conf into /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d , and we updated our Litecoin system and other Ubuntu based OS's like Linux Mint to the following:

sudo apt-get install fglrx
sudo amdconfig --initial --adapter=all -f && sudo amdconfig --initial --adapter=all
sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/custom.conf

We hope this helps resolve this little issue we were seeing on every reboot!
