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
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.
i have a lenovo g550 with nvidia geforce g 105m i tried to install its driver on fedora 11 and 12 and i have followed the instructions of setup as in fedora sites and forums, the problem is after installation i have 6 equal screens 640*320 and i don't know how to edit xorg.conf
I've just done a fresh install of Lubuntu 10.10 on an older Sony Vaio laptop. Having learned the hard way about editing xorg files, I wanted to create a backup of the xorg.conf file so that I dont have to do another install when I screw everything up. In a terminal, I typed
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." #
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?
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?
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?
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:
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?
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.
I did fresh install of Slackware64 ver. 13.0 and immediately updated it to slackware-current by following the directions here: http://slackwiki.org/Upgrading_SlackwareSo far all is normal and functional except for xorg-server.When I did Xorg -configure under ver.13.0, it worked perfectly and detected my nvidia 8800 GTS vidcard and 1440 x 900 lcd monitor.However, after upgrading to "current" and xorg-server-1.9.4, I'm getting a segmentation fault and cannot configure a working xorg.conf.I've been searching xorg seg errors, but haven't found a solution yet.My /var/log/Xorg.0.log:

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)?
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.
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?
I am using Linux 2.6.29-020629-generic #020629 SMP Tue Mar 24 12:03:21 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux ubuntu.
I have a widescreen lcd laptop and the current resolution is set at 1280x768 pls see output of xrandr here for more information [url]
I want to change the resolution to 1024x768. I can do in ubuntu' display tool. The problem is that once I change it, the output does not take up the whole screen it has blank spots on the left and right side
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].
Been trying to setup my xorg.conf file to have a 1920x1200 screen.Strange behavior: when my X starts up, I see my mouse cursor, can move it around. It's small enough to suggest the 1920x1200 resolution took, is working.However, the rest of the screen remains black. No login prompt.I've looked at /var/log/xorg.conf, no errors.Is there something else I can look at?
Can anyone help with me configure my dual-screen monitors for rotation? I have xrandr 1.1. Have tried various approaches, nothing takes. I can't even get the xrandr options to show up in KDE's Display control panel.
My lspci output: 03:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV516 [Radeon X1300/X1550 Series] My current xorg.conf (works, minus screen rotation): # Xorg configuration created by system-config-display
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.
I just upgraded my Debian Etch to Lenny. After doing so, Xorg displays no fonts. I get only rectangles. This occurs in the Login Screen and after logging in. The only thing that is readable are the contents of a terminal (even gnome-terminal). What can I do to solve this Problem? The Xorg.0.log doesn't give me any clue on what's the problem.
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.
