dropline gnome is on fallback mode, how to go back to normal?


Hello all,

The topic pretty much states my problem. I tried to install AMD proprietary video driver and when I started X after running "# aticonfig --initial -f".

I uninstalled the driver, restored the original xorg.conf (blank) and Gnome is still messed up! How to solve it?

Thanks in advance,
gtludwig

Well,
There are two xorg.conf-like files on /etc/X11.

The one name xorg.conf is an one-line file:
# NOXORGCONFEXISTED: No X.org configuration file existed when this backup was created.

The one named xorg.conf-vesa I pastebin here:

Proprietary driver overwrites some files related to other packages, not sure exactly which ones. Try to reinstall xorg-server & mesa.

That did the trick! I issued the commands:
# slackpkg reinstall xorg-server
# slackpkg reinstall mesa

And restarted X. All is OK now!
Thank you!
