(K)Ubuntu On A Dell E1505

I recently installed Kubuntu via Wubi, uninstalled Kubuntu after a bunch of things didn’t work, installed Ubuntu via Wubi, found out that a lot of things didn’t work, got those things to work, installed kubuntu-desktop, and uninstalled ubuntu-desktop.
Here's the status


Anyway, stuff that didn’t work out of the box.

1280×800. It didn’t let me choose that resolution, the max was 1024×768. You have to do some editing in xorg.conf, or there’s some command line junk that you have to enter, go here if you need it. That’s not how I fixed it, I don’t remember what I did but it involved mindlessly pushing enter for two minutes and you probably shouldn’t do what I did because you might screw something up.
