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
