NAME

xorgcfg - Graphical configuration tool for Xorg  

SYNOPSIS

xorgcfg [-config configfile] [-modulepath moduledir] [-fontpath fontsdir] [-toolkitoption ...]  

DESCRIPTION

Xorgcfg is a tool to configure Xorg, and can be used to either write the initial configuration file or make customizations to the current configuration.

When the DISPLAY environment variable is not set, xorgcfg will run the command Xorg -configure to allow the xserver to detect the hardware in the computer, and write an initial xorg.conf file in the user's home directory. Then, it will start Xorg and allow customizations.

If the DISPLAY environment variable is set, xorgcfg will read the default xorg.conf, which may or may not be the one being used by the current server, and allow customizations.

To use an alternative location for modules or fonts the respective search paths may be specified.

Unless there is an Apply button in the current xorgcfg dialog, the changes made will take place the next time Xorg is started.

Xorgcfg allows addition and configuration of new devices, such as video cards, monitors, keyboards and mouses.

Screen layout configuration for xinerama or traditional multi-head is also available.

Modelines can be configured or optimized.

AccessX basic configurations can be made in the xorgcfg's accessx section.

 

OPTIONS

-config
Specifies an alternate xorg.conf file for configuration.

Specifies where xorgcfg, and the server it may start, should look for Xorg modules.
-serverpath
Specifies the complete path, not including the binary name, of the Xorg binary.
-fontpath
Specifies the path to the fonts that should be used by the server started by xorgcfg.
-textmode
If xorgcfg was compiled with support for ncurses, this option makes xorgcfg enter a text mode interface.
-nomodules
When built with support for loading modules, this options changes xorgcfg behaviour, so that it will not load any modules, and thus start quicker.
