I just now experimented with both
sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
to see what they do.
They do both reconfigure xserver-xorg (by auto
editing /etc/X11/xorg.conf) and I presume somehow flag something so
that the file will be updated again when you upgrade xserver-xorg in
The -phigh flag causes dpkg-reconfigure to ask you way fewer questions.
Both with and without that flag, dpkg-reconfigure seems to make a backup
copy of your current /etc/X11/xorg.conf before writing its new one.
That is nice, should you decide to revert.
The comment that I quoted below from the top of /etc/X11/xorg.conf is
still relevant, if you do manually modify /etc/X11/xorg.conf.
