I am wondering where is my xorg.conf located? My X runs normally, but today I want to change the screen resolution to 800x600 in order to work with a projector, but I then found there is not a xorg.conf under /etc/X11. I can find a file /etc/X11/xorg.conf-vesa, but it has no effects on my system. Can anyone please tell me where is the default xorg.conf? And, if possible, is there another better way to change screen resolution temporarily?
What's the reason behind that? If no a default xorg.conf, how xorg know the properties for the X environment, . . . .
X probes the machine for configuration information upon startup. The maintainers of X have become so confident in its ability to do that they have eliminated the default xorg.conf, but you can create one if you wish to experiment with or debug something.
Slackware uses /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d for defaults, with overrides/additions by eventual /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/* files.
