    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.
    Thanks.

    Never mind! I found out what I did. I was set at 1024x768x85 Hz. I tried x60 Hz and I regained my screen.

    Is Nano okay (as opposed to Vim)?
    Code:
    sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf_backup
    sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf

    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.

    Found 'em!
    1.) sudo nano /etc/X11/XF86Config-4
    2.) sudo dpkg -reconfigure xserver[:]xorg
    I know I'm missing some others however.
