Glad I could be of some small help. I am not a guru like lobster or BarryK or the others. I am nothing other than a seminary student, forklift operator, husband, and father. I just happen to have been using puppy for a while now and have learned a few things, so if I can help, I try to. Naturally I am outclassed by some of these guys, but that is fine. I can always stand to learn more.

Subject description: Newer version of puppy have it in the /usr/bin/xwin I think....
 

Hi All,

Version 4.3.1 has the autoconfig using xorgwizard....
in the /usr/bin/xwin...

This caused me heaps of problems finding.. so I thought I would help out for other people like me:]

Also it automatically moves the xorg.conf if the hardware changes to xorg.conf.GraphicsCardNameMontitorName.
Then cp the xorg.conf.GraphicsCardNameMonitorName if it can find it to xorg.conf...
Then if no xorg.conf it runs xorgwizard...

So if you spend hours configuring say a touch panel or something not auto detected device in xorg.conf... then plug in a different monitor... say goodbye to your config....

regards,
Rip...
