Upgrade Xorg configuration

Upgrade Slitaz :

# echo 'y' | tazpkg upgrade

Backup xorg.conf :

# mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf-backup

Re-configure Xorg with tazx :

# tazx config-xorg

User tweaks

If you have tweaked the xorg.conf file, then you have two possibilities. In both cases the tweaks will be read before the default configuration and will not be erased by an upgrade :

  • Put your modifications (examples) in the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf. This file is now reserved for users, it's the first read by Xorg when X boots.
  • You put them in the correct file in the directory /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d. SliTaz use two files for each Xorg section :
    • n0-Section.conf for the default configuration and :
    • (n-1)5-SectionTweaks.conf for the configurations which overwrite the default one.

Example :

40-evdev.conf contains the default configuration for all devices.

35-synaptics.conf is installed with the package xorg-input-xf86-synaptics and contains the configuration file for touchpad. It overwrites the default one (evdev).

If you wish to modify this section manually, take care to rename the file with a lower number like 31-MyDevices.conf. And don't use a file named x5 or x0 to ensure that it will not be overwritten by an upgrade.
