Hi Guys,

I would consider myself as pretty competent with linux, and moreso backtrack, however there are certainly an awful lot of things I DONT know, one of those being much to do with the xorg configuration.

I am having trouble getting my synaptics touch pad working properly, at first i had missed the autoexec=xconf;kde part of the syslinux.cfg file and was racking my brains as to why my xorg.conf changes we're being reset at every reboot, but after digging around I figured it out.

Anyway, after that hurdle, ive installed the synaptics drivers that went fine, and changed my xorg.conf to load the driver, set the input device etc etc, however on boot it says error on line 64 (as far as i can recall) and it is complaining about the screen. Here is my xorg.conf (this is what is on my system, running right now, after the autoexec=xconf) - if I copy this exactly, make the synaptics changes but leave everything else, i get the same error every time i startx.

I know this is probably trivial but I'm starting to struggle a bit!
