    nvidia x server config

    since i reformatted my new hard drive i have been having issues saving my config file when i tried to save to x configuration file it says: Failed to parse existing X config file '/etc/X11/xorg.conf'!

    i used to be able to open the file as root and copy over the old x config with the new one but it wont let me even preview the changes until i click save to x configuration file. anyone know how i can fix this error? i tried uninstalling and that didn't help.

    I had a similar problem trying to edit my xorg.conf file.
    Here's what worked for me:

    At the terminal, type:
    Code:
    sudo nvidia-xconfig
    You should get a response like
    Code:
    Using X configuration file: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf".
    
    VALIDATION ERROR: Data incomplete in file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.
                      Undefined Device "(null)" referenced by Screen "Default
                      Screen".
    
    Backed up file '/etc/X11/xorg.conf' as '/etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup'
    New X configuration file written to '/etc/X11/xorg.conf'
    After you should be able to run either
    Code:
    sudo nvidia-settings
    or
    Code:
    gksu nvidia-settings
    I hope this helps....
