Xorg Wizard

April 24, 2013 — BarryK
Just to let everyone know, I'm working on the Xorg Wizard, script /usr/sbin/xorgwizard.



use backup of xorg.conf

" I wonder is there any way of automating the use of a backup copy of xorg.conf So if there is crash of X or a restart of X then the user could select the backup copy with a simple terminal command.

"Ideas I have : * Split xorgwizard into xorgwizard_cli and Xorgwizard for the gtkdialog gui . * Put the touchpad xorg.conf snipplets into an /etc/X11/xorgwizard/touchpad.db file that can be sourced . * Confuse newbies by putting in dialog --title "Summary of Xorg test" --exit-label "Proceed" --textbox /var/log/Xorg.0.log into while [ "$XAUTO" -ne 0 ];do #testloop

Only video full-screen
Username: Raffy
"As a user, I only have an issue with Xorg settings when I try to play videos full-screen. Otherwise, a basic Xvesa display will be OK. A "barebone" wizard like what Wary uses could be used as a first step, and then the user can choose to explore the advanced setup later. Just my 2c.

"I came across this the other night and wonder if it may be of use to puppy? Also wondering about a non-x-server puppy, how up to date are we with T2 to make one with woof2?
