xf86cfg(1)              FreeBSD General Commands Manual             xf86cfg(1)

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
       current 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
       section.

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
               modules, and thus start quicker.
