sm8ps, sorry to hear that things are not working.
Can you upload your Xorg.0.log so that I have some idea what is going on?
I have personally confirmed that HP 2133 1280 x 768 FP edition works on Xubuntu
18.04, but the initial installation is somewhat tricky.
If I remember it correctly I had to disable VESA and disable mode setting
during installation for it to just install.
I do not use Xubuntu 18.04 at all due to the Eclipse IDE 3.8 and OpenJDK 8
breakage issue that has not been resolved, and I doubt it will ever get fixed
since Canonical people rarely fix issues after the software release even for an
LTS version.
