NAME
       xf86cfg - Graphical configuration tool for XFree86 4.0

SYNOPSIS
       xf86cfg	[-xf86config  XF86Config]  [-modulepath	 moduledir] [-fontpath
       fontsdir] [-toolkitoption ...]

DESCRIPTION
       Xf86cfg is a tool to configure XFree86 4.0, and can be used  to	either
       write the initial configuration file or make customizations to the cur-
       rent configuration.

       When the	DISPLAY	environment variable is	not set, xf86cfg will run  the
       command	XFree86	-configure to allow the	xserver	detect the hardware in
       the computer, and write an initial XF86Config file in the  user's  home
       directory. Then,	it will	start XFree86 and allow	customizations.
       If  the	DISPLAY	 environment  variable	is  set, xf86cfg will read the
       default XF86Config, that	may not	be the same 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	 xf86cfg  dialog,  the
       changes made will take place the	next time XFree86 is started.

       Xf86cfg 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	xf86cfg's accessx sec-
       tion.

OPTIONS
       -xf86config
	       Specifies an alternate XF86Config file for configuration.

       -modulepath
	       Specifies where xf86cfg,	and the	server it  may	start,	should
	       look for	XFree86	modules.

       -serverpath
	       Specifies  the complete path, not including the binary name, of
	       the XFree86 binary.

       -fontpath
	       Specifies the path to the fonts that  should  be	 used  by  the
	       server started by xf86cfg.

       -rgbpath
	       Specifies  the  path to the rgb.txt file	that should be used by
	       the server started by xf86cfg, if any.

       -textmode
	       If xf86cfg was compiled with support to	ncurses,  this	option
	       makes xf86cfg enters a text mode	interface.

       -nomodules
	       When  built  with  support  for	loading	 modules, this options
	       changes xf86cfg behaviour, so that it will not  load  any  mod-
	       ules, and thus start quicker.
