For more details, refer to the xorgcfg 1 manual page. This entry is not used by many drivers, and it should only be specified if the driver-specific documentation recommends it. A common task is using the external video output on a notebook computer for a video projector. If the mouse does not work, you will need to first configure it before proceeding. The frequency is specified in MHz. Don’t specify it unless the driver-specific docu- mentation recommends that you do. BIOS settings depend on the model of computer.

X11 Configuration

The following line will also have to be added to xorg. InputDevice ” idev-id ” Note that only VESA standard modes are supported as defined by the target system’s graphics frreebsd. All other entries are optional.

SubSection “extmod” Option “omit XFreeDGA” EndSubSection Modules are searched for in each directory specified in the ModulePath search path, and in the drivers, extensions, input, internal, and mul- timedia subdirectories of each of xorv directories. The screen-num field is optional, and may be used to specify the screen number in multi-head configurations.

There is a known race condition where the machine can lock up when loading the graphics driver or starting X.

Xorg uses EDID to communicate with the monitor and detect the supported resolutions and refresh rates. Monitor ” monitor-id ” specifies which monitor description is to be used for this screen.


InputDevice sections recognise some driver-independent Optionswhich are described here. These services should be started either manually or by rebooting before further Xorg configuration is attempted.

At sorg point, it will be as easy as adding one besa these resolutions as a possible Mode in the Section “Screen” as such:. For example, most projectors can be used with a x resolution, which is set with –mode x ClockChip ” clockchip-type ” This optional entry is used to specify the clock chip type on graphics boards which have a programmable clock generator. Options specified in this section with the exception of the “Default- ServerLayout” Option may be overridden by Options freebse in the active ServerLayout section.

The most commonly used options are: For description of what these parameters do, call sysctl with the description flag. The best way to see what’s available for your driver is to execute sysctl compat.

They consist of a keyword, which is possibly followed by one or more arguments, with the number and types of the arguments depending on the keyword. The value is stored internally to the xxorg kHz.

So the first step is to run xrandr 1 to list all the available outputs: If AllowEmptyInput is on, devices using the kbd, mouse or vmmouse driver are ignored. Four outputs were found: DefaultFbBpp bpp specifies which framebuffer layout to use by default. Using Fonts in Xorg.

As the super user, simply run:. Run xrandr 1 without any parameters to see a list of video outputs frdebsd detected monitor modes:. If this entry is omitted, a default range of Hz is used. Set United States, Spanish, and Ukrainian keyboard layouts. The Relative form specifies the offset of the screen’s origin upper left corner relative to the origin of another screen.

Some of the latter are described above in the sec- tion about the Screen section, and they may also be vessa here. The X11 server may also be started with the use vdsa xdm 1.

This will allow configuration of the hardware as any other graphics board. Built-in modes with different names are, however, still implicitly included, when they meet the requirements of the monitor. Here is an example of a ServerLayout section for a dual headed configu- ration with two mice:
