That did the trick ! Thanks :-)
The script seems to add a few option (besides installing the driver) to
the xorg.conf file, in the driver section. I don't remember those
options, because I'm not on my laptop now.
But thank you again, I'm going on vacation with a light heart (don't know

PS1 : one question remains : is this 100% Debian-proof, and what has to be
done if a new kernel arises in the updates ?
PS2 : and BTW, that's two questions !
