Since the original forum thread is now closed http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=73064, I thought it pertinent to bring this up here. Mine is 'uname -a': 2.6.32-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Tue Jan 19 06:08:04 UTC 2010 i686 Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 1.70GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux. Using XFCE 4.6 with GDM and Xorg device hotplugging. I tried the suggestions for systemwide enabling of the keybindings by making the mentioned changes in /etc/hal/fdi/policy/10-keymap.fdi . But it did not work. Inspite of restarting the hal daemon and X. And a complete restart as well. I was able to apply the per-user setting suggested though: setxkbmap -option terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp and it works great. All I had to do for it to apply to any future sessions was to goto XFCE Menu>Settings>Session And Startup>Application Autostart>Add and make the appropriate entry. This is an easy way to create a working .desktop entry in the ~/.config/autostart/ folder. ( [[User:erythrocyte|erythrocyte]] Sat Jan 30 07:38:10 IST 2010 )

I added [[http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Xorg#Disable_mousekeys_permanently Disable mousekeys permanently]] but I am not sure if this is the best way to go about disabling the mousekeys, if anyone know a better way, please edit. [[User:Lordmetroid|Lordmetroid]] 10:44, 3 February 2010 (EST)

Revision as of 15:44, 3 February 2010

The current zapping technique doesn't seem to work anymore. Maybe adding this instead ?

Section "ServerFlags"
        Option          "DontZap"               "false"
EndSection

Added some problems people may encounter after the mouse driver and auto protocol no longer detects mousepads/trackerpads fully, in the trouble shooting section. they could go in the synaptics section. but when people search for problems related to the mousepad/trackerpad and xorg they may not know about the synaptics driver.


I added a paragraph about switching between different layouts. I'm not sure that it should really go in this article but I think it needs to be on the wiki somewhere. Finding out how to it by searching the web or different forums is a bit hard at this point. Frood 09:28, 10 January 2008 (EST)


Most links of example xorg.conf are broken. They should either be relinked or removed. Cilyan 13:31, 05 August 2008 (EST)


The Beginner's Guide Install X section recommends installing libgl before installing xorg when using an open source video driver. If it's still good advice, this article needs to include a mention. UNIVAC 18:53, 24 September 2009 (EDT)

Xorg -configure

The command automatically generates a default xorg.conf.new file in the current directory. You can check it by:

The xorg.conf.new file is not created in the current directory, it is created in $HOME.

Changed it. Gog 21:55, 16 October 2009 (EDT)

Disabling mousekeys

I added [Disable mousekeys permanently] but I am not sure if this is the best way to go about disabling the mousekeys, if anyone know a better way, please edit. Lordmetroid 10:44, 3 February 2010 (EST)
