Configuring X on *buntu-8.10


What is the correct way to take full control in comparison to *buntu 8.04?

In kubuntu, 'display settings' is too incomplete (as indicated in the kde site as well)

An interesting link is
http://who-t.blogspot.com/2008/07/in...-nutshell.html

Otherwise, there is some documentation.

I had problems on one of my computers using an old
Compaq TFT5005 monitor, so I just reused the xorg.conf
from "Sabayon" for Ubuntu 8.04.1 and 8.10 .

Another easy way to generate a new xorg.conf is to run
the livecd with PCLinuxOS2007 (or MiniMe2008) and save
the xorg.conf to USB-key or to Google-Docs.

You will have to uncomment line 30 :
# # Load "type1"
Then it works perfect in ubuntu.

Regards

I just put in my custom xorg.conf file (in 8.04) into the 8.10 system and everything worked fine.
