       xorgcfg - Graphical configuration tool for Xorg

       xorgcfg [-config configfile] [-modulepath moduledir] [-fontpath fontsdir]
       [-toolkitoption ...]

       Xorgcfg is a tool to configure Xorg, and can be used to either write the
       initial configuration file or make customizations to the current

       When the DISPLAY environment variable is not set, xorgcfg will run the
       command Xorg -configure to allow the xserver to detect the hardware in
       the computer, and write an initial xorg.conf file in the user's home
       directory. Then, it will start Xorg and allow customizations.

       If the DISPLAY environment variable is set, xorgcfg will read the default
       xorg.conf, which may or may not be the one being used by the current
       server, and allow customizations.

       To use an alternative location for modules or fonts the respective search
       paths may be specified.

       Unless there is an Apply button in the current xorgcfg dialog, the
       changes made will take place the next time Xorg is started.

       Xorgcfg allows addition and configuration of new devices, such as video
       cards, monitors, keyboards and mouses.

       Screen layout configuration for xinerama or traditional multi-head is
       also available.

       Modelines can be configured or optimized.

               server started by xorgcfg, if any.

               If xorgcfg was compiled with support for ncurses, this option
               makes xorgcfg enter a text mode interface.

               When built with support for loading modules, this options changes
               xorgcfg behaviour, so that it will not load any modules, and thus
               start quicker.
