Why not just copy the file in your /home, e.g in /Documents? If you have a problem you just have to replace the file with it to crush the wrong version and to return to the original state... :wink:

or anything else:
BakUp_xorg.conf

To make a backup in the same folder:

Code: Select all

sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup


if you want a backup in your home Documents folder, just:
    cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /home/your login name/Documents


Aloha, Tim
