Question Different xorg.conf-files for users

Is it possible that different users have their own xorg.conf-files?

You could try:
$ startx -- -config /your/users/xorg.conf

Have the user run xorg.config from there account and it'll save the xorg.config file in their /home directory. When they run startx it should read the xorg.config file in their /home directory. I'm pretty sure anyway.
