 Trident Cyberblade XPAi1

Brand: Toshiba (Graphics/Video/TV card)
Back

Release: Helena

What works:

The monitor works in 800x600 on Toshiba Portege 4010.

What doesn't work:

You cannot resize the monitor in GUI and cannot install drivers for it.
Any resolution above or below 800x600 does NOT work.
Compiz effects do not work.

What was done to make it work:

Created custom xorg.conf for this card.

I've created a quick guide for solving this issue within the GUI.

First, open the terminal.
Type "sudo nautilus" and hit enter.
Enter your password.

When Nautilus comes up, double click on 'file system' to the left.
Double click on the 'etc' folder.
Double click on the 'X11' folder.
If you have a xorg.conf file in there, open it. If not, right click >Create Document > Empty File and name it xorg.conf.

Paste the following into the xorg.conf file:
(Do not include the rows of *****)

**********************************

# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
#
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
# sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

Save the file.
Restart your computer.

Additional notes:

This fix works in Linux Mint, Ubuntu, and any other OS that would have an issue with this card and can use a xorg.conf file.

Note: Compiz effects cannot be enabled even after this fix.
