I haven't had an Xorg.conf since 14.04. Unless I use NVIDIA X Server 
Setting, and tell it to to save to X Configuration file then it creates 
one. But when I reboot, I still have to go in and make changes to set up 
my desktop, ie making my middle monitor the primary display. So I don't 
think it reads it during startup.
