    Problem with tablet and xorg.conf

    My upgrade to hardy has gone well for the most part on both of my machines.

    However, on my laptop (Toshiba Portege M200), to use my tablet features, I need to edit my xorg.conf in order for it to recognize the pen on the monitor. The problem is that when I do that, i restart, and it goes into safe graphics mode, and to fix that I run:

    Code:
    sudo init 1
    and then select fix X (or something similar). This generates a new Xorg.conf file.

    Here is the xorg.conf that I am trying to use that generates the error. It may also be relavant that I had to fix X the first time I upgraded this laptop from Gutsy to Hardy.

    Anyone know how to fix this?

    Code:
    # 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.
    #
    # 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
