NAME
       xorgcfg - Graphical configuration tool for Xorg

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

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

       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.

       AccessX basic configurations can be made in the xorgcfg's accessx
       section.


OPTIONS
       -config Specifies an alternate xorg.conf file for configuration.

       -modulepath
               Specifies where xorgcfg, and the server it may start, should look
               for Xorg modules.

       -serverpath
               Specifies the complete path, not including the binary name, of
               the Xorg binary.

       -fontpath
               Specifies the path to the fonts that should be used by the server
               started by xorgcfg.

       -rgbpath
               Specifies the path to the rgb.txt file that should be used by the
               server started by xorgcfg, if any.

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

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

       XWINHOME
               Directory where Xorg was installed, defaults to /usr/X11R6.
