    Red face Re: Problems after startx: blank screen and no mouse

    That definitely fixed my screen (for now)
    There's still the issue with have no mouse, but i probably guess i have to configure it in xorg.conf aswell?
    I found a nice howto on configuring X so i guess i have to do some more reading.
    To bad i don't have so much time the coming days so i'll fix that one later.
    In time i want to have a dual screen setup..
    Thanks for your help and getting me on the right track!

    Cool Re: Problems after startx: blank screen and no mouse

    I finally figured it out. I had to add some extra lines to the xorg.conf. For people reading this topic and who have similar problems (and zero experience with X), here are some links:



    That should definitely get you started

    Here is my final xorg.conf:

    Code:
    Section "ServerLayout"
    	Identifier     "aticonfig Layout"
    	Screen      0  "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0" 0 0
    	Option "AutoAddDevices" "false"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Module"
    EndSection
    
    Section "InputDevice"
    	Identifier   "Mouse0"
    	Driver	     "logitech"
    	Option       "Protocol" "auto"
    	Option       "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
    	Option	     "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Monitor"
    	Identifier   "Configured Monitor"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Monitor"
    	Identifier   "aticonfig-Monitor[0]-0"
    	Option	    "VendorName" "ATI Proprietary Driver"
    	Option	    "ModelName" "Generic Autodetecting Monitor"
    	Option	    "DPMS" "true"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Device"
    	Identifier  "Configured Video Device"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Device"
    	Identifier  "aticonfig-Device[0]-0"
    	Driver      "fglrx"
    	BusID       "PCI:1:0:0"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Screen"
    	Identifier "Default Screen"
    	Device     "Configured Video Device"
    	Monitor    "Configured Monitor"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Screen"
    	Identifier "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0"
    	Device     "aticonfig-Device[0]-0"
    	Monitor    "aticonfig-Monitor[0]-0"
    	DefaultDepth     24
    	SubSection "Display"
    		Viewport   0 0
    		Depth     24
    		Modes  "1280x1024"
    	EndSubSection
    	SubSection "Display"
    		Viewport  0 0
    		Depth    16
    		Modes  "1280x1024"
    	EndSubSection
    	SubSection "Display"
    		Viewport  0 0
    		Depth    8
    		Modes   "1280x1024"
    	EndSubSection
    EndSection

    Default Re: Problems after startx: blank screen and no mouse

    I had the same problem with mouse and screen. I installed my ATI driver, that worked fine till i rebooted. I solved it by putting the next in my /root/bash_profile

    fix-vesa
    aticonfig --initial
    startx

    i hope this helps

    I think the thing that fixed your mouse issue is the aticonfig. I would just warn you that if you ever change your xorg.conf the fix-vesa command in startup will change it back
    cd ~
    cd ./fridge
    rm beer
    cd ../bedroom
    more beer
