Slackware :: Difference Between Files (xorg.conf And Xorg.conf-vesa)?

Feb 16, 2011

1. What is the difference between files (xorg.conf and xorg.conf-vesa)

2. No matter how hard I try I can't change keyboard layout in xorg.conf-vesa (I change it in file ) but there is no actually anything changing, it starts to get annoying - for example - below goes my xorg.conf-vesa, if I uncomment and set line from

Jul 10, 2011

I am trying to install debian as a DC but on reboot I get the "Input not supported " error. I switched to virtual input and login to try to edit the xorg.conf file but created a new file instead because the xorg.conf file is open by the installation. How do I close it so I can edit it and continue. I am afraid to start a new file as I am not sure what is in the ools one.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Edit Either Fstab Or Xorg.conf

Feb 13, 2010

I am running Ubuntu 9.04 on an Acer Aspire laptop and have broken my display system while trying to use the restricted drivers for the nvidia graphics card.

Basically I downloaded and activated the restricted driver. I rebooted and now ubuntu freezes on startup.

I can get access to the command line but am unable to edit either fstab or xorg.conf because ubuntu has mounted the filesystem in read only mode.

I have read and tried all the options given in this posting [URL] but because I cant read or write any of the files I cant seem to affect any change to the system

Hardware :: Xorg.conf Is Replaced With A Default Xorg.conf After Reboot ?

Apr 9, 2010

I have installed Kubuntu 8.04.2 on a USB stick with persistence to keep any changes I make after a reboot and it works fine. I then installed the 185 Nvidia driver to give me higher resolutions and it works fine.

But each time I reboot, my updated xorg.conf is replaced with the default xorg.conf that ships with that version of Kubuntu and a backup is made of my updated xorg.conf (the correct one) which looks like xorg.conf.20100409135913. I have to put the backup xorg.conf back in place to get my Nvidia driver to work with the correct screen resolutions again. Otherwise my screen resolution is too low.

What could be causing this behavor? I'm sure it not the persistence feature of the USB stick failing since a backup is made of my original xorg.conf.

I might add more information. The xorg.conf that gets changed after a reboot says "This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using # values from the debconf database." #

Slackware :: No More Xorg.conf?

Jun 2, 2010

Sorry if this was well covered here when most up-to-date Slackers moved to 13.0, but I have just jumped from 12.1 to 13.1. Generally very happy that I do not have to think about xorg.conf as I always found the structure of this conf file a tad confusing. However if I do need to (for example) change my video driver (I might for example want to try the nvidia driver from NVIDIA) or configure my touchpad - how do I do this ?

I understand that xorg.conf can still be created. If I do so, do I have to put all the stuff in that used to be there or can I just add the stuff I need to make the changes I am looking for?

Slackware :: No Xorg.conf.d Directory In 13.1?

Feb 20, 2011

I just did a clean install of 13.1 on one of my laptops and the scroll doesn't work on the synaptics touchpad. I've seen some comments about adding a file to the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ directory. I don't have this directory. Is it ok to add this, or did I screw something up during the install. I did another 13.1 install about a week ago and it is also missing this directory. Is this just something in current and not in 13.1?

Slackware :: 13 X64 Doesn't See Xorg.conf?

Apr 9, 2010

I have freshly installed Slackware 13 64-bit.

After messing around last time trying to compile fglrx for my ATi card, I now understand it uses a built in radeon driver.

My question is this: how do I get X to recoqnise my custom xorg.conf file? I dropped it in /etc/X11 but to no avail.

HAL does it great job - but I need my xorg.conf as I have dual monitors which HAL doesn't configure correctly (displays mirrored, not stretched).

Slackware :: TV - MONITOR 26 And Xorg.conf ?

Jun 9, 2011

I bought a very beaultiful pink tv-monitor 26", model LG26LED6500 for my daughter and I also intend to enjoy it setting up in my slackware 13.37. Then I use a VGA cable and 6600GT nvidia card, but now I'm having a doubt because there aren't vertical and horizontal frequencies specs in this manual. Only:

I did a xorg.conf using a vesa driver and kde screen output was a 1024x768 - 61hz.

If I try to use a nvidia driver and xorg.conf piece above X break down. If I use any manual frequency parameters X break down too.

1)What's the difference between CRT config and tv-monitor xorg?

2)Have I use strings modeline monitor and modes screen in this situation?

Slackware :: Getting Xorg.conf To Match Monitor

OpenSUSE Install :: Precedence Of Xorg.conf Over Xorg.conf.d?

Jan 26, 2011

I've read the how-tos (thank you oldcpu!) and wikis about how xorg.conf take precedence over the section configuration files in etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/, if it exist. I also understand that the xorg.conf can be partial. If it is missing some sections, these will be taken from the corresponding xorg.conf.d section config file. Currently I'm using a xorg.conf generated by nvidia-settings in one of my home machines, due to a dual-monitor setup. After generating xorg.conf, the device sections are:

in xorg.conf:


Section "Device"
Identifier "Device0"
Driver "nvidia"


My question is if the Option "UseCompositeWrapper" "True" will be used or not. In other words, if a section exist in xorg.conf then it's correspondent in xorg.conf.d/ will be completely ignored *or* only the lines in xorg.conf.d/ that already exist in xorg.conf will be ignored?

Ubuntu :: Editing Xorg.conf - /etc/x11/xorg.conf Does Not Exist

I'm running the ubuntu based Green OS and cant get my video card properly configured. i've already gone through the forums to figure out what i need to do to get my ATI card working but my system wont let me access the xorg.conf file. i can see it using the the GOS file editor but it wont let me save the modifications. when i attempt to edit from a terminal window with su privelages it tells me that /etc/x11/xorg.conf does not exist. i've even tried booting into recovery mode and using the root instead of the sudo command. nothing i've tried will let me open the file.

Slackware :: Getting A Segmentation Fault And Cannot Configure A Working Xorg.conf?

Hardware :: Getting A Radeon Xorg.conf.d/*.conf Stuff?

May 22, 2011

I have used nVidia my entire linux life (about 5 years clean and sober from M$). Recently, I have switched over to an ATI Radeon HD 5550 card. After many trial and error setups, I finally got the resolutions and screens set properly with a xrandr command, which I have now added to a shell script in ~/.kde4/Autostart. It has worked for me for a while now, but I really would like to get it set in the xorg.conf.d files so that I don't have to wait that extra few seconds after login for the screens to fix themselves.

Is there an easy way to take what xrandr does and export it to the xorg.conf.d files? If my video card recognizes my default monitor as DFP2 and the tv that I only sometimes use with this computer as DFP1, how can I ensure that the login screen for openSUSE/KDE4 appears on my default screen (an issue that drove me nuts a few months ago when I tried Ubuntu to see what all the fuss was about)?

My xrandr command that I use to fix it all is:

xrandr --output DFP2 --auto --pos 0x0 --primary --output DFP1 --auto --right-of

I am using the proprietary Radeon driver from the ioda repository. DFP2 is a monitor which has a optimum resolution of 1920x1200, and DFP1 is an 1080p HDTV. I can not reverse the output plugs for the screens even though my monitor is an HDMI monitor because I use the actual HDMI port on the video card to output audio to the television and the other plug is a DVI that I convert to HDMI for the monitor.

General :: Possible To Add More Than One Graphic Device Driver To Xorg.conf

Jul 24, 2011

Is it possible to add more than one graphic device driver to xorg.conf and it will load automatically? It is important to autodetect because I am using the configuraiton read only. This is because it's a custom LIVE CD.This is what I currently have, and it works!

Problem is if I put my Live CD in my brothers machine, it fails to load because it uses a Radeon driver!I can preinstall the ati packages I need, so all i need to know is how do I make it work?

For a better understanding please have a look at [url] and [url]

In open suse the system sets it at 1024x768 without any blanks on the left and right corner. You can have a look at it here [url].

My current xorg.conf is details is at [url].

Please also find my xorg.0.log at [url]

General :: Configuring Xorg.conf On RHEL5 To Support Dual Monitors?

Jan 19, 2010

My Dell Precision Workstation was shipped in 2003 with RH Linux installed (most likely RHEL 4) - though not sure.

At the time, the dual monitors worked by replacing the X86config file with one sent from Dell.

Since, my disk failed and I had to replace the disk and reinstall RH Linux with the shipped disks, RHEL 5.

Now, I can not find X86config; rather, I have been trying to update the Xorg.conf file with no to limited success.

Both monitors are driven off of one Nvidia Quadro FX 1300 videocard. My goal is to get the screen to span both.

Does anyone have a Xorg.conf file that would support this?

General :: Increasing Screen Resolution To 1024x800 In Ubuntu - No Xorg.conf File?

I have set up my Ubuntu virtual machine and am trying to adjust the screen resolution because it's stuck at 800x600 presently and there are no higher resolution options. I've looked at numerous similar forms and tutorials online and they all seem to involve editing /etc/X11/xorg.conf. However, for whatever reason, this file seems not to exist on my machine. I found another tutorial on how to add a screen resolution using xrandr --addmode which added the resolution I want to the list that appears when I type the command xrandr, but when I try to apply it I get an error about CRTC 262 failing.

General :: Xorg.conf - Can't Adjust The Screen Density Between 640x480 And 1024x768 By Hitting "<ctl><alt>+ Or <ctl<alt>"

Nov 1, 2010

Up through Slackware 13.0 I used xorg.conf without trouble. On Slackware 13.1 I am caught between two unacceptable alternatives. If I don't use xorg.conf at all I can't adjust the screen density between e.g., 640 x 480 and 1024 x 768 by hitting <ctl><alt>+ or <ctl<alt>- If I use the same xorg.conf that I have used for years I gain the above facility but when I go to a console session via <ctl><alt>F1 the monitor complains that it is being fed bad information. If I can't resolve this conflict I will have to retreat to Slackware 13.0.
