I want to find and edit my xorg.conf file for tweaking and configure it for new settings. The problem is that I’m unable to find the file. According to my research, xorg.conf should in /etc/X11 or /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/ directory. I found directories but not the file in directories. How do I find the xorg.conf under Unix or Linux like operating systems?

Q. How do I start or stop X.Org from a command prompt?
A. X.org is open-source implementation of the X11 system. It is an open source X11-based desktop infrastructure. Xorg provides an interface between your hardware and the graphical software you want to run. Besides that, Xorg is also fully network-aware, meaning you are able to run an application on one system while viewing it on a different one.
