You probably want to look at you XF86Config file. At the
command prompt, "man XF86Config" will give you the low-down
on what your options are in the config file.
Many don't seem to have a problem with the config
application, but it's never been a once-over solution for
me. When setting up x, I'll use the application to create
the config file, then I'll go in and customize it for my
needs. I assume it's because I have one of those cheapo
video adapters built into the motherboard, but I imagine
that a lot of people find it necessary to do so.
Hope this helps.
