NAME

     xf86cfg - Graphical configuration tool for XFree86 4.0

SYNOPSIS

     xf86cfg [-xf86config XF86Config] [-modulepath moduledir] [-
     fontpath fontsdir] [-toolkitoption ...]

DESCRIPTION

     Xf86cfg is a tool to configure XFree86 4.0, and can be used
     to either write the initial configuration file or make cus-
     tomizations to the current configuration.

     When the DISPLAY environment variable is not set, xf86cfg
     will run the command XFree86 -configure to allow the xserver
     detect the hardware in the computer, and write an initial
     XF86Config file in the user's home directory. Then, it will
     start XFree86 and allow customizations.
     If the DISPLAY environment variable is set, xf86cfg will
     read the default XF86Config, that may not be the same being
     used by the current server, and allow customizations.

     To use an alternative location for modules or fonts the
     respective search paths may be specified.

     Unless there is an Apply button in the current xf86cfg dia-
     log, the changes made will take place the next time XFree86
     is started.

     Xf86cfg allows addition and configuration of new devices,
     such as video cards, monitors, keyboards and mouses.

     Screen layout configuration for xinerama or traditional
     multi-head is also available.

     Modelines can be configured or optimized.

     AccessX basic configurations can be made in the xf86cfg's
     accessx section.

OPTIONS

     -xf86config
             Specifies an alternate XF86Config file for confi-
             guration.

     -modulepath
             Specifies where xf86cfg, and the server it may
             start, should look for XFree86 modules.

     -serverpath
             Specifies the complete path, not including the

xf86cfg(1)          UNIX Programmer's Manual           xf86cfg(1)

             binary name, of the XFree86 binary.

     -fontpath
             Specifies the path to the fonts that should be used
             by the server started by xf86cfg.

     -rgbpath
             Specifies the path to the rgb.txt file that should
             be used by the server started by xf86cfg, if any.

     -textmode
             If xf86cfg was compiled with support to ncurses,
             this option makes xf86cfg enters a text mode inter-
             face.

     -nomodules
             When built with support for loading modules, this
             options changes xf86cfg behaviour, so that it will
             not load any modules, and thus start quicker.
