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 :: 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

Ubuntu :: Create A Backup Of The Xorg.conf File - Cannot Stat /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Dec 11, 2010

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

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 :: 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?

Fedora Hardware :: F12 System Doesn't Like Xorg.conf?

Feb 4, 2010

I just installed Fedora 12. I have an NVidia FX 5200 card. This xorg.conf will work fine (no 3d acceleration, btw):


Now here's the odd part. If I uncomment the Device section and reboot or logout so that X restarts, my screen will not enter graphics mode. It just flashes on and off several times in text mode and finally stops. It's as if it keeps changing modes trying to get happy and never does.

Ubuntu :: X Doesn't Read Settings From Xorg.conf?

Jun 16, 2011

I'm running Kubuntu 11.04 on a laptop with dual monitor setup. I have Nvidia graphics card and I've successfully configured TwinView for the monitors. However, after saving the settings to xorg.conf (using the nvidia-settings application) X should use both monitors after boot, but only the main monitor is used. I first thought that X didn't read xorg.conf at all, but when I put some illegal statements into the file X wouldn't start and gave an error about the illegal statements. It is thus clear that X does read the file, but it just doesn't seem to use the settings in it.

I have the same problem as described in [URL]. Apparently the solution is to add

However my system apart from this works fine without xorg.conf. Is there a way to change the AccelMethod without an xorg.conf?

Slackware :: Getting Xorg.conf To Match Monitor

I am using a AOC 19" LCD on a system with an on board Nvidia GeForce 4 MX and I cannot get X to start with 1280x1024, the max for the monitor.

Here is the sections for xorg.conf

It always defaults to 160x1200, which the monitor proclaims "Out of Range" and I have to in through Display Setings to set to 1280x1024. What do I need to put in xorg.conf to default to 1280x1024.

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

May 3, 2010

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.

Slackware :: Build - Change The Picture With Lilo.conf Doesn’t Work

May 5, 2010

when i load lilo, everything is greenish and weird, i tried to change the picture with Lilo.conf, fallowing the exact instruction given by linux forum, dosnt work. the linux logo got verry strange colors has well,verry ugly.

at first i tried to install my ati driver, but my x1800 is not supported anymore, so i decided to run xconfsetup to use the default ati driver. After that i have been in the xorg.conf generated by the setup and it seem they got the right driver, it say radeon in the device section. another problem i experience is that everytime i lod KDE my default resolution suck, and when i open the control panel and click on display, everything goes right.

the last problem is more serious, when i order my computer to shutdown either by command line or with the logout button, the screen goes black and nothing happen at all. Its sad beccause so far everything else seem to work fine, i installed my network card and my sound card properly.

Debian Installation :: PPC G4 Where Is Xorg.conf?

Aug 5, 2011

I just did a net install on an old powerpc G4 and it seems pretty successful.except i cant change any of the monitor settings from the control panel in gnome (or LXDE)its showing 'not recognised' and only allows 768 x 1024 in very restricted colour.I dont think there is a hardware problem:

- the monitor is a generic old CRT which has worked fine with everything before this.

- the display card is an AGP 32Mb - original with this G4 and was working.

- the computer works great in Mac OS10.3 - (but OS10.3 doesnt support flash or up to date web browser any more, hence trying debian).

i have searched debian forums and various sites, but i couldnt find a fix. It looked like i should edit xorg.conf file but I am not able to find it. I looked in /etc/X11 - but not there.could someone tell me please, do i need to find xorg.conf?

OpenSUSE :: Disable TV-Out Without Xorg.conf?

I am running Crossover Office on a laptop on OpenSuSE 11.2 with a fair bit of success (Outlook is still twitchy related apparently to the http stack). But whenever I do disk I/O to a windows app and I have a second monitor plugged in it flashes to black.

In prior OpenSuSE versions I used to be able to stop this by adding entries to disable the TV output in xorg.conf but now it appears that there is no xorg.conf in use. How do I disable this in the post-sax2 era?
