First approach would probably be to re-run the automatic
X-configuration. I looked that up on google for a problem I had
yesterday. The following command reconfigures X:
sudo pdkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
the -phigh causes to skip possible questions from the package
configuration. If you want to provide more information to the
configuration tool, use -plow instead of -phigh. -p means: priority of
questions to ask.
