I am trying to build an xorg.conf file in Lubuntu 12.10 using a tty login. I am following the documentation at Lubuntu Workarounds. It asks me to stop the lxdm service in order to run Xorg -configure to build a xorg.conf file, which I can then tweak to get my display's running correctly (without dead space).
The problem is that my computer claims that no LXDM service exists to "stop." How should I go about killing the current session so I can run Xorg -configure?
I have been able to configure Xorg in a new display session (display1) but it doesn't find the drivers or correct display settings, perhaps because I cannot kill the current session.
