I did reconfigure as you suggest. I get two error messages: no  usable 
screen and no frame buffer found. I see there's an option in the
dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg process to do without the frame buffer. i'll
check again if I disabled this option.
I compared the xorg.conf files in Debian and in Xubuntu, and corrected the
reference of the screen.
