I checked /var/log/Xorg.0.log. The file starts the same as yours. But the
line that on your system says :
(==) Using config file: "/etc/XF86Config"
Says on mine :
(EE) Unable to locate/open config file
It seems that my system uses default values instead. And KDE starts up OK.
Is there a reason why I should consider creating a config file anyway ?
