    Yes, 11.2 is doing away with xorg.conf. You can configure most things from the settings icon from the kickoff menu. Sax2 also has settings for video and keyboard.

    Did you update? If so, it was left over from the previous version.

    It was a clean install downloaded and installed yesterday.

    Oh really, so where would I configure my video chip driver and its option statements? I normally do that in xorg.conf, given that sax2 only supports those in the golden cage.

    AFAIU, you can still choose to use xorg.conf for custom configurations if necessary, as many do with Fedora and Ubuntu (both using new Xorg release). Xorg is increasingly relying on hal for configuration, and so no (or minimal) xorg.conf is generated during installation. Some related reading:

    I think it would be good idea to make sure you keep a working xorg.conf from openSUSE 11/11.1 just in case you need to use it with 11.2.

    Thanks for the reply deano, that makes sense to me. I notice that kubuntu 9.04 has a minimal xorg.conf (relying on hal for k/b and mouse) compared to the dinosaur version in 11.1 - should have been spring-cleaned several releases back, e.g. deprecated font paths, useless modelines.

    Quite right, I always keep a copy of my latest working xorg.conf, fstab, and menu.lst, etc on a separate data partition.

    Default Where can I configure kdm login screen

    I put into ~/.kde4/env/xrandr.sh
    Code:
    #! /bin/sh
    if xrandr | grep "VGA-0 connected" ; then
      xrandr --newmode 1400x1050ral 121 1400 1488 1632 1864 1050 1053 1057 1089 +HSync +VSync
      xrandr --addmode VGA-0 1400x1050ral
      xrandr --output LVDS --off --output VGA-0 --mode 1400x1050ral 
    else
      xrandr --output VGA-0 --off --output LVDS --auto
    fi
    for autostart to ajust my non-auto-mode VGA monitor. But this leaves kdm login screen in an unconfigured state. Other distributions consider
    /etc/kde4/kdm/Xsetup
    to use for configuration of kdm. Allthough openSUSE has this file nothing happens when putting xrandr commands there. Where can I configure the kdm login screen?

    I think you can use the ~/.xinitrc.template file for this. Edit this and save as .xinitrc

    It then gets called when X starts AFAIK. Give it a go and let us know how it goes.
