Then i tried to configure the XF86Config in /etc/X11 with"./XF86Config"but there are a lot error messages with a long list of not founds, bellow are few of them:
./XF86Config:line 388:endsection command not found.

....... "./XF86Config" .........
not sure what your trying to pull off with that command, just type :
in all small letters and reconfigure that way ...

and try to "structure" your posts to be more readable in the future ....

p.s. i didn't go look for it, but i seen you posted this yesterday, so just a heads up not to double post ;-)
