Bug Description

I tested the latest wily package earlier this week, and the isolinux dependency does not appear to have "taken" for Xubuntu respins. Xenial Xubuntu's has the same problem, i.e. I need to install the isolinux package manually and then it works. I tested that out today. Oddly, it does work on the regular Ubuntu releases.

Thanks for your excellent work on this package.

Could it be that the reason for this is because the xresprobe package is not available?

Ubuntu team:

UPDATE: xresprobe should become (insert relevant here),
xresprobe became laptop-detect for resolution detection for a broader set of architectures.
xresprobe only worked on i386 and PPC.

Also:
systemd debate. Does this system make concessions for systemd or bypass it all by moving the install to isolinux for an init system there? Thoughts?

I believe that this is correct. xresprobe is no longer installable on the
latest release because of the complete switch to systemd.
