     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.

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

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

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

             When built with support for loading modules, this

             not load any modules, and thus start quicker.
