Where is the X.org config file? How do I configure X there?

I am new to Kubuntu 11.04 and needs some helps from you guys. I tried to modify Xorg.conf so I can get my logitech trackball mouse to work properly in kubuntu. As far as I know, the path to Xorg.conf is /etc/X11/Xorg.conf. However, I couldn't find it there.

Anyone knows where it is or what I should do next? Thanks a lot.

The file xorg.conf is no more required for the configuration of the X server, that can do a very good job automatically.

Anyway you can create your own xorg.conf file if you need custom configuration.

You can have a little help in creating a basic xorg.conf file with the command

sudo X -configure

that will generate a file xorg.conf.new in your home. Edit as needed, rename it and move it to the correct location.
