First of all, do you think this is the most appropriate section for my problem?
I wasn't sure where to post.
Second, the problem:
I want to learn how to deal with Xorg/X Window issues and am becoming increasingly frustrated. I guess I was spoiled with the program Envy in Kubuntu. I didn't have to do too much except download a file and follow some easy directrions.
But, I am using Mepis and most of the debian-based distros require more complicated steps. Although, Mepis has a built-in X configuration tool, it didn't work for me and maybe I messed some things up, I don't know.
I thought this might be a good place to ask because drivers, nvidia drivers, nvidia cards are main topics.
My card is a PCI-E 7950 GT and I am willing to try any steps as I have two computers with Nvidia cards and I am willing to install any debian-based distro although Mepis is on the other computer as well. The other computer has a GeForce FX 5200 AGP card inside.
I have tried several different steps with no success. It is most helpful if anyone trying to help can include a brief explanation of what the command is supposed to do. Sorry for my ignorance. If anyone knows a good method for learning X stuff, please share. It's been the most troublesome of my Linux experience so far.
