Where is xorg.conf?


I used /usr/X11/bin/xorgconfig to create my xorg.conf. Where would it be? Thanks in advance for your help.

For just the one file, yes, but for the whole boat, no...

Is there anyother place then /etc/X11 that xorg.conf can reside in? I do not have an /etc/X11.

In a terminal issue "locate xorg.conf" for that specific
file, or "locate xorg" to see what all it's installed.

Which distribution of Linux are you running? List that
in your LQ UserCP please.
