20. X Window System (Graphics)

This section contains information related to the X Window System implementation provided with Fedora.

20.1. xorg-x11

X.org X11 is an open source implementation of the X Window System. It provides the basic low-level functionality upon which full-fledged graphical user interfaces (GUIs) such as GNOME and KDE are designed. For more information about X.org, refer to http://xorg.freedesktop.org/wiki/.
You may use System > Administration > Display or system-config-display to configure the settings. The configuration file for X.org is located in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.
X.org X11R7 is the first modular release of X.org, which, among several other benefits, promotes faster updates and helps programmers rapidly develop and release specific components. More information on the current status of the X.org modularization effort in Fedora is available at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Xorg/Modularization.
