Ubuntu :: Change To 96 Dpi No Xorg.conf?

Oct 13, 2010

I've just installed the latest ubuntu (10.10) on vmware workstation and noticed the resolution is not 96 dpi so my fonts look a bit unsharp

I wanted to change that and noticed I don't have an /etc/X11/xorg.conf? So my question is of course...where should I put the "Option..." line to change it to 96 dpi?

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

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." #

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.

Ubuntu :: Where To Change X Configuration Options In Natty Without Xorg.conf

May 24, 2011

I need to add an option to my xorg.conf to enable "backing store", like this:

Section "Device"
Identifier "Miserable Old SVGA"
Driver "miserable"
Option"BackingStore""True"
EndSection

But I don't have an xorg.conf file in Natty. There are several conf files in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/, but I'm not sure which one to add it too (I can't find the Device section in any of them). I guess I don't even know if the "BackingStore" option is valid in the latext Xserver.

OpenSUSE Install :: Change /etc/X11/xorg.conf From NVidia To Nv To Get A X To Run In Xen?

I have the nVidia driver on my desktop kernel set-up but have to change /etc/X11/xorg.conf from nVidia to nv to get a X to run in Xen. Whilst this works, is there a way to tell Xen at boot time to use nv rather than nVidia so I don't have to edit xorg.conf each time?

Hardware :: Forcing Xorg.conf To Not Change (no Detection)

May 3, 2010

I have a home theatre setup, where the hdmi output from my nvidia card goes to a 3 way splitter. I have found a modeline that all 3 monitors are happy with and all works well.

However, every bootup causes linux to detect a different (of the 3) monitor, a changing the video resolution etc..

How do I force linux to just use the Xorg.conf as is (without detecting new monitors every time and messing things up).

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:

Code:

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

[code]....

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?

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.

Ubuntu :: Switching Between Two Xorg.conf's?

Jun 6, 2010

I've got an i5 Macbook Pro, on which I've got Ubuntu 10.04, which I use 90% of the time (mainly for work).

I've added a few lines to xorg.conf to make the graphic card run cooler and thus get some more battery life. Sometimes, though, I do need full graphic potential, for which I have another xorg.conf prepared without those lines, so I can switch back and forth when I need it.

Currently, to change back and forth, I rename the files accordingly and reboot, which is a pain in the neck. I tried restarting gdm after switching files instead but it didn't quite work (maybe I wasn't doing it correctly).

So, fellow experts, what's the easiest and fastest way to switch between two different X11 config files?

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?

Ubuntu :: Log In In Text Mode To Fix Xorg.conf?

Thinking to be clever, I made some changes to /etc/X11/xorg.conf and now I cannot see anything on the screen after Ubuntu boots up, just a 'mode not supported' message on the screen.How can I log into Ubuntu in text mode in order to fix the xorg.conf problem? I hope there is a "hot key" to stop Grub right before it starts loading Ubuntu and allows me to log in into Ubuntu in text mode.

Ubuntu :: Can't Find Xorg.conf And So Can't Save Changes?

Jan 23, 2010

I've been trying to setup dual-screen in my system, but the control panel complains it can't find xorg.conf and so I can't save changes I make in the nvidia control panel. I was trying various methods of trying to get a dual screen working how I like it.Left = 17" 1280x1024 that sometimes works (needs hitting a few times)Right = 21" 1680x1050 main screenI wanted to have everything on the right one, my main workspace. And I wanted a seperate x workspace on the left hand one. (Mainly so that when the one on the left decides to not work, I can use the panel thing at bottom to move apps to the right one)

Now I know since 9.10 xorg.conf is non-existant and so determind on the fly or something.Is there a way to get X to write out the current working xorg.conf that's it's using? i.e. It's auto determind x,y,z and that's what right now this second is being used. I want to save this as a working xorg.conf so I can fine tune it etc.
