My bad...I agree with Christian that if you are not comfortable with the inner workings of xorg it might not be a good idea to edit the conf file. If you still want to tinker, just drop into your xorg directory and do<br>
<br>$ sudo cp xorg.conf xorg.conf.bak<br><br>Then edit the xorg.conf file and restart X. If it happens to crash for some reason, just drop into a virt term and do<br><br>$ sudo cp xorg.conf.bak xorg.conf<br><br>That will over-write your modified (non-working) conf file with the original (before modification)
<br>If you need any other help, just ask.<br><br>Ernest<br><br><div class="gmail_quote">On Dec 4, 2007 9:08 PM, Christian Einfeldt <<a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org">email@example.com</a>> wrote:<br><blockquote class="gmail_quote" style="border-left: 1px solid rgb(204, 204, 204); margin: 0pt 0pt 0pt 0.8ex; padding-left: 1ex;">
hi <br><br>Alex, don't mess with your xorg.conf file. Ernest's recommendations below are probably really sound, but he might not know your skill level, but I have a better feel for it, since you came over to the school the other day (and thanks for that). You and I are at a comparable skill level, and I would recommend that you not try to mess with it, but get some help in person at the next LUG meeting.

This is a known bug that has to do with the nvidia driver. I'm assuming you have an nvidia card? Use the restricted modules manager to enable the restricted nvidia driver. Reboot. If that doesn't immediately fix it, then add the following to the 'Screen' section of your
xorg.conf<br><br><p>Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "true"</p></blockquote></div><br>
