I tested the new stuff on my laptop.
I was asked one question, for my keyboard layout, because my locale was not
set to en_US but POSIX. Possibly this is a difference when not running
The generated configuration worked perfectly. Thanks, Fabio!
Differences from the old config to the new were:
- An InputDevice section was added for my touchpad
- Monitor section:
- Named "Generic Monitor" rather than "Generic Laptop LCD" (only a
cosmetic change, obviously)
- HorizSync and VertRefresh were added (28-50, 43-75). I'm not sure if
these values are correct, or even used, for my laptop LCD
- Screen section:
- Rather than a list of modes, most of which were skipped, there was only
one Mode, which was the (correct) size of my LCD.
