Whereis xorg.conf

Hello. I am currently running Ubuntu 9.04

I am tweaking my drivers and need to access the xorg.conf file. Problem is, Ubuntu 9.04 seems to have removed the file.

Does anyone know how I recover the xorg.conf file for editing (or create a new file)?

It's usually located in the /etc/X11 folder. Running
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
will build you another one. Make sure to be prepared with the relevant information about your hardware (monitor, keyboard, mouse, etc.).
