    When ever I have experienced graphics problems, I have found that reconfiguring the x server has fixed it. This is not a guaranteed win, but it has never let me down.

    Reconfigure the X Server? That sounds scary and difficult!

    Not really...

    sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

    I usually find that taking the defaults except for screen resolutions sorts out my issues.

    If it still doesn't work you can restore the backup you took before you started (see post number 4)

    Now what was it isn't it, and what is it is weird and scary to me.
    It'll happen to you too."

    That didn't work... after kinit it said no image found...
    How do I revert back and get the backup file as my main file?
    Press Alt+Ctrl+F1. It will switch to command line mode. Log in there and exeute this
    Code:
    cd /etc/X11
    sudo rm xorg.conf
    sudo mv xorg.conf.bak xorg.conf
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
