How to repair a broken xorg.conf.


So I had f'ed up my xorg.conf apparently. Full story and explanation here: http://linuxtravels.blogspot.com/2006/12/i-wtfed.html

After a little playing around I was able to get it working again.

If xorg goes completely whack on you try this combo:

From terminal:
sudo dexconf

then

sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg


Hope this helps someone thats having problems.

Maybe that should tell you something about the distro you are using.

/ignite distrowars

I'm j/k btw.

I'm sure some out there will find it useful and thats why I put it here.
