> This is a problem of your videocard. Suggestions: 1) install ati-driver
(however, it doesn't work for me - ATI Radeon hd 4670) 2) open
/etc/X11/xorg.conf and edit it: change Option "ActiveDevice" to "LCD,CRT"
(you can do it from recovery mode typing "nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf").
It is not a bug of Lubuntu. Currently, it is a bug of Lucid and will be
solved in the future.

Best wishes,
