Why is xorg.conf empty?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 8, 2011
This is my complete /etc/X11/xorg.conf file after a fresh install of ubuntu 11.04 (graphics card: nvidia 6200):
Identifier "Default Device"
Option "NoLogo" "True"
As you can see it is almost empty. It doesn't look anything like other xorg.conf files I've seen. There is no "driver" line, for example.
I can generate an xorg.conf file by running "nvidia-settings". Then I get an xorg.conf file that looks normal. But how does the system work with an empty xorg.conf? Where is it getting the information?

is it normal that the conf file for xorg, situated in /etc/X11 is empty?

after having a few problems with various things after a kernel upgrade on my fedora partition, i have been pointed in the direction of my xorg.conf file in order to fix my graohics card problems and my mouse (while being recongized) not moving around the screen problems.
sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/xorg.conf
only to find it blank. i also tried
sudo gedit /etc/x11/xorg.conf
and found only the same thing. surely this is the root and cause of all my problems. how do i fix this?
[SOLVED] Empty xorg.conf file
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 17, 2008
Hello, I'm new to ubuntu after ditching xp in a moment of intrepidity. I am currently writing this post from a dell inspiron 1100 with a 82845g built in graphics card and running Feisty. I have my graphics running with the generic Vesa driver at full resolution but my screen is very grainy and flickers. I followed some threads to try to correct this but found my xorg.conf file is empty. What can I do to correct this? And yes, I have changed video memory to 8 MB and updated my bios to A32.
[SOLVED] edit Xorg.conf in Kubuntu 11.10
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 3, 2011
Okay..so I've posted a similar question before but the situation is a little different now. I'm running Kubuntu 11.10 and I can't get KDE to save my default display resolution once I've changed it in K.
I'm running an older IBM Thinkpad T30 and my ATI Radeon Mobility 7500 is no longer supported by the proprietary ATI linux driver (so I left it to the default driver..did not try installing ATI one).
I've done a little reading up and I know by default Oneiric Ocelot (11.10) does not have an Xorg.conf file but I can't figure out how to generate one. Or where to copy it to.
Any suggestions? Thanks
P.S. I promise to backup my xorg next time

I would like to ask for Your help.
Since my first installation of Ubuntu i've had problems with running Ubuntu on newer graphic driver than those installed/shipped with Ubuntu.
For an example, with Ubuntu 12.04 everything works perfect with his own nvidia-drivers 295.xx but as soon as i install something new, new drivers like 304.37 from x-swat ppa, than i have problems with Ubuntu such as problems with xorg/drivers/screen realted issues.
I will try to explain it a little more. My problem is realted to logging off Ubuntu when, for an example, i use, i run smplayer but only when xorg.conf is generater either trough nvidia control panel and saving to x (by gui) or when generated trough terminal by running nvidia-settings.
When there is no xorg in ubuntu, everything works but sometimes i have problem with twinview, which i doesen't need, doesen't use because i have only on LCD screen. TwinView sometimes turn itself without choosing it to run.
If i generate xorg.con

[SOLVED] [ubuntu] prevent loading X during startup after error in Xorg.conf
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 22, 2010
I am using ubuntu 10.04 and made some changes in Xorg.conf to try enabling twinview.
Unfortunately, Ubuntu just stops at the startup logo now.
Is there a way I can stop the loading of X, so I can undo the error in Xorg.conf and hopefully make Ubuntu load normally again?
Grub automatically loads Ubuntu, there is no Grub menu that allows loading of some alternative config.
Thanks in advance,
enable 16 color depth / force use of xorg.conf
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 14, 2011
I am using Lubunto 10.10 on my Acer aspire one, and it works like a charm.
I need to load som old games via wine, but these games require 16 bit color depth.
For this reason I followed a guide (http://forum.lxde.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1492#p4135) to create an Xorg.conf file, and edited the apropriate section in the file to 16 bit, rather than 24.
Lubunto however does not seem to pay any attention to the Xorg.conf file settings, and continues to set the screen depth to 24 bit.
The newly edited Xorg.conf file sits in /ect/X11 folder - is this correct ?
Should configurations be made elsewhere, since I am using the LXDM gui rather than KDE/Gnome ?
I have even created a root account in order to get permissions to put the Xorg.conf file in the x11 folder.
[SOLVED] Unable to login to GUI after last update xorg.conf in ubuntu 12.04
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 6, 2012
Since the last update of ubuntu 12.04, the system won't boot into gui anymore. It states that it was unable to load the graphics drivers and gives me 4 options, these are:
•run in low graphics mode for 1 session
•troubleshoot the error
•exit to console login
whichever option I choose, it doesn't solve anything. For instance, when i choose to reconfigure graphics and then switch to vesa drivers, the screen goes back to the option list.
So i configured xorg.conf to vesa myself, and i see in the update history that ubuntu updated xserver-xorg-core and xserver-common whereas i blocked these updates in synaptic since i'm aware that updating these files caused troubles with my particular video card (radeon hd6800). So my solution is probably to revert these files to the older (working) versions. How can I do this please (in particular xserver-xorg-core since i think this is the main cause of my problem).
