Unable to locate/open config directory : "xorg.conf"

I'm trying to get x to use my generated xorg.conf file (xorg.conf didn't exist after my installation). To do so I generated an xorg.conf file with:

Xorg -configure

This worked successfully, and generated a xorg.conf.new file in my /root directory. I moved it to /etc/X11/ and renamed it to xorg.conf. I then ran:

Xorg -configdir /etc/X11/xorg.conf

This seems to have pointed x properly to my new config file, however whenever I startx, it indicates it can't locate/open the config directory and defaults to the xorg.conf.d file.

My build is still pretty minimal, and I only have dwm installed, so i'm hesitant to delete the Xorg.conf.d file and screw my wm for tomorrow. What's the best way to fix this?

Also, this is my first post on the Arch forums, so I'm not sure if my paste will be in the nice boxes I normally see.

I should also mention that I am using a thinkpad L470.

My /var/log/Xorg.0.log shows:

Re: Unable to locate/open config directory : "xorg.conf"

Please esit your post and use code tags: https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Genera … s_and_code

It is unlikely that you need an xorg.conf, especially an auto-generated one. Remove it and start X.

Re: Unable to locate/open config directory : "xorg.conf"

Also

Xorg -configdir /etc/X11/xorg.conf

What do you think "configdir does?
Cause it's not

have pointed x properly to my new config file

- https://man.archlinux.org/man/extra/xor … #configdir

Since you probably didn't arrive at this brilliant idea yourself: the guide your following has probably more ridiculous errors…

I'm trying to get xcompmgr working for transparency. In the wiki, it says that the xorg composite function needs to be enabled, and that I have to edit the config to do so. If I don't need an xorg.conf, where would I enable this? I do have an xorg.conf.d in my /etc/X11 directory, but the xorg.conf.d is a directory instead of a file for some reason. I don't know why it's like that, seeing as the x log shows that it's using that as the config file.

Also to seth - I'll do some more reading on that function, but I do see that my xorg.conf is trying to be loaded. What would be the proper way to specify the config file I want for x?

I'm still quite new to linux, let alone arch so I'm sorry if I'm asking any stupid questions in this thread.

That's bullshit. Where exactly does the wiki say that?

the xorg.conf.d is a directory instead of a file for some reason

That's the point and Jasons link should sufficiently explain the situation and everything else.

However, this is a clear xy-problem and the premise is wrong.
If you've problems w/ xcompmgr, please elaborate on them - what you're doing right now will absolutely not fix them.

Right in the very first section on Installation.  I strongly suspect this is nonsensical / bad advice, but it is most definitely not bullshit to claim that it's advised in the wiki, it's plainly there:

Re: Unable to locate/open config directory : "xorg.conf"

I did mean that the advice is BS - resp. it would be.

The OP wrote:

it says that the xorg composite function needs to be enabled, and that I have to edit the config to do so

The wiki actually wrote:

If there is no output [from "xdpyinfo | grep Composite"], add the Composite option to the Extensions section of xorg.conf

While that's certainly correct, I doubt that the OP meets the condition in that sentence but iffff they do, there's an underlying problem that needs to be addressed.

The extension is enabled by default since ages (more than a decade) and according to the posted Xorg log, it's also enabled w/o that extension being explicitly called.

Re: Unable to locate/open config directory : "xorg.conf"

Okay, so when I run "xdpyinfo | grep Composite" it now shows Composite as the output. When I ran it last night, it had no output - I figure I mistyped and didn't notice. Sorry for the bad post.

On the other hand, I'm being open and honest about being new to Linux and Arch. Trying to not clog the forums with useless posts, so this is literally the first time I've posted in any forum. No need for all the hostility seth. Just trying to learn like everyone else in the Newbie Corner.

I'm requesting this thread for deletion because it was a user error.

Re: Unable to locate/open config directory : "xorg.conf"

There's no hostility.

If there was a wiki entry that said that one had to edit the xorg.conf to enable the composite extension, that wiki entry would be bullshit.
That's why I asked.

And whatever got you into thinking you had to Xorg -configdir  in order to have Xorg read /etc/X11/xorg.conf as config file is a terrible source for information.
