I also ran it as sudo in a terminal and got the same error, this was the terminal output;

"VALIDATION ERROR: Data incomplete in file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.
Undefined Device "(null)" referenced by Screen "Default Screen".

Segmentation fault"

Its a karmic bug. I solved like this.


sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.confThen,


sudo nvidia-settingsThen save the file as,

/etc/X11/xorg.conf

Then reboot!
