about editting config
I'm having a hard time remembering how to edit my xorg NOT using vim. There was a command to edit it directly so as to enter your horizontal and vertical syncs for monitors.
I could really use a refresher on this. The reason I ask is, so far everything works great except my display is slightly smaller than my screen size, which I think has to do with my syncs?
Would apreciate some help.
Never mind! I found out what I did. I was set at 1024x768x85 Hz. I tried x60 Hz and I regained my screen.

nano and vim
I'll have to look through my notes for the exact command. I remember it didn't need any special keys pressed to navigate a file while editting. Vim always drives me crazy. Unless it's changed to be more friendly?
Trying to think outside Notepad and Edit is a challenge.
1.) sudo nano /etc/X11/XF86Config-4
2.) sudo dpkg -reconfigure xserver[:]xorg
I know I'm missing some others however.
