Single or Multiple Files. They must correspond to those specified or referenced in the appropriate Monitor section including implicitly referenced built-in VESA standard modes. Option “XaaNoOffscreenPixmaps” Disables accelerated draws into pixmaps stored in offscreen video memory. The list of mechanisms is ordered from highest precedence to lowest. Option “IsolateDevice” ” bus-id ” Restrict device resets to the specified bus-id. Then it selects the most appropriate combination of settings to use with that monitor. Gener- ally, the “DoubleScan” Flag mentioned above doubles this value.

Outdated initial port here. When posi- tioning above or below, the left edges are aligned.

In most cases the driver will chose the best default value for this. Option “SendDragEvents” ” boolean ” Send core events while dragging. Keyboard Layout The standardized location of keys on a keyboard is called a layout. Most other module types are loaded automatically when they are needed via other mechanisms. When the Xorg server is started by the “root” user, the config file search locations are as follows: Option “UseDefaultFontPath” ” boolean ” Include the default font path even if other paths are specified in xorg.

Xorg Configuration

This option is on by default, but it may be neces- sary to turn it off if there are bugs in the driver. So the first step is freebed run xrandr 1 to list all the available outputs:. First, add the frequencies for the target system’s monitor. See mousedrv 4 for a full list. This can be overridden with the -depth treebsd line switch to Xorg 1. Please see this Github issue for more context.


Other Video Cards Drivers for some less-common video cards can be found in the xdrivers directory of the Ports Collection. This section assumes a bit of advanced configuration knowledge. Font path elements can be absolute directory paths, catalogue directories or a font server identifier. The directory can then be populated with symlinks pointing to the real font directo- ries, using the following syntax in the symlink name: Only the most important acceleration options are discussed here.

The following line will also have to frfebsd added to xorg. The posi- tion-information field describes the way multiple screens are positioned.

This optional entry specifies the list of video modes to use. The first step is to build an initial configuration file. Other resolutions supported by the monitor can be chosen by setting the desired resolution in configuration files, or after the X server has been started with xrandr 1.

Driver and mod- ule specific configuration parameters are described in the relevant driver or module manual page. The ServerFlags options described above may be specified here, and ones given here override those given in the ServerFlags section. There should nor- mally be at least one, for the monitor being used, but a default con- figuration will be created when one isn’t specified. The specifications for the monitor are used by X11 to determine the resolution and refresh rate to run at.


Xorg uses EDID to communicate with the monitor and detect the supported resolutions and xog rates. When using the loadable server, the driver mod- ule ” freegsd ” will be loaded for each active Device section.

FreeBSD Manual Pages

These numbers are the vdispvsyncstartvsyncendand vtotal values. InputDevice sections have the following format: The most commonly used options are: The Driver entry specifies the name of the driver to use for this input device. Using this directory helps keep application files separate from operating system files.

Section “ServerLayout” Identifier ” name ” Screen ” screen-id ” The visual types available for depth 8 are default is PseudoColor:
