xf86cfg - Graphical configuration tool for XFree86 4.0
xf86cfg [-xf86config XF86Config] [-modulepath moduledir] [- fontpath fontsdir] [-toolkitoption ...]
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.
-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 XFree86 Version 4.5.0 1 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.
