did you use *sudo* to edit the xorg.conf ?


sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf


sudo vim /etc/X11/xorg.conf

It sounds like you could open it, but not write to it, so that would 
point to not being root when editing.
In ubuntu, the common method is to use sudo before a command which would 
then ask you for your password so it can run with root permissions.
