Issue 2: xorg.conf… I found this file on the internet, it looks good, but they had formatting in it which I have stripped out (an xorg.conf file doesn’t support the crap they had in there)… website was something like helpdeskgeek, but now lost. Here’s a copy and pate from mine. This works, I think it’s crap free, and there’s nothing more in there (I left nothing out)
