Okay, I'm sure if this is the spot to put this question, but here it is: I was trying to get my scroll wheel on my mouse to work. I logged in as root, started X11, and changed the file. I restarted the system and logged in as myself and stated X11. The screen went black and then came back up saying
XIO: fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server ":0.0"
after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 results remaining.
So, what can I do? All I did in root was change the xorg.conf file, adding two little commands.
I would have put this in the Desktop section but there is one already there and there was no answer found.
