NAME
       xorgcfg - Graphical configuration tool for Xorg

SYNOPSIS
       xorgcfg	[-config  xorg.conf] [-modulepath moduledir] [-fontpath	fonts-
       dir] [-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 detect the hardware	in the
       computer, and write an initial xorg.conf	file in	the user's home	direc-
       tory. Then, it will start Xorg and allow	customizations.
       If  the	DISPLAY	 environment  variable	is  set, xorgcfg will read the
       default xorg.conf, 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	 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 sec-
       tion.

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 to	ncurses,  this	option
	       makes xorgcfg enters a text mode	interface.

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