|−|hey, I just installed Linux a clpoue of hours ago, so bear with me please.I typed in the command but the file was empty. I typed in the code anyway and saved it but it didn't work. What should I do?(Bear in mind I've had Ubuntu a good 3 or so hours and only just managed to figure out how to open the Terminal) Andrei Reply:May 17th, 2011 at 11:49 PMI think you might be missing the xorg.conf file, which in some cases is not uncommon. You just have to generate a new one. To do so, try these steps and follow the eventual instructions you see:1. Press Ctrl+Alt+F1 or Ctrl+Alt+F2.2. Login with your username and password.3. sudo /etc/ init.d/ gdm stop ( this will stop the X server) 4. cd /etc/ X115. sudo mv xorg.conf xorg. conf.notworking (this line might not apply in your case, but try it anyway)6. sudo X -configure7. sudo cp ~/xorg.conf.new /etc/ X11/ xorg. conf8. sudo /etc/init. d/gdm start |+|
I it work .the 1. /etc//() /etc/.conf.this in /etc//...
