Xf86config Toshiba Laptop Problem
I installed Debian over my mandrake install trying to get different distros to work on the machine to see which one I like the most.
So I wiped the HD clean and started again with Debian.
Toshiba (not sure of model name or number)
PII 333 MHz
8 mb ATI
320 mb RAM
Install went as it should. Just installed the desktop envioronment only.
After install Debian I got an X error on the mouse for my laptop. The laptop has a one of those touch screen mice. When I run xf86config, I got threw all the motions to change the mouse drive or module and then it goes to save the file in the /usr/*, but it appears that the file that is actually being used to open these drivers is in /etc/*. Not to mention the file that Debian uses is XF86Config-4, and not the XF86Config. So I guess I need to know a couple of things...
One, being someone unused to not using a XGUI for file modifications, is there a site that will give me the basic view/copy/rename/edit
Two, being a way to get this to work. I have search but I couldnt find anything that would answer this question. If I am wrong and someone can link me to that post that would be great.
