I'm trying to follow this tutorial: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=535659

And when I started installing libwiimote I had an issue, so I followed this guys advice: http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-933332.html and reconfigured the install for that and cwiid for hci_remote_name to hci_read_remote_name.

Now I'm at the part where I need to edit my xorg.conf, and yet when I first looked I had none. I assumed it was there, and did:

sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.old
sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

And the thing that popped up was empty like I had created a new file. So I ran dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg, and now my xorg.conf looks like this:


# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
#
# Note that some configuration settings that could be done previously
# in this file, now are automatically configured by the server and settings
# here are ignored.
#
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
# sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

Section "Device"
Identifier "Configured Video Device"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Configured Monitor"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Monitor "Configured Monitor"
Device "Configured Video Device"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Wiimote"
Driver "evdev"
Option "Name" "Nintendo Wiimote"
EndSection

And where it says "at the end of the "ServerLayout" section" (in the tut) I'm stuck. Any ideas?

xorg.conf has been deprecated by the Xorg consortium in favor of automatic detection but you can still use it to set options for x.
