Ubuntu DIY – How to Fix “Failed to parse existing file etc/X11/xorg.conf”!

For those of you using Nvidia’s proprietary driver on Ubuntu and get the following error:

Failed to parse existing file etc/X11/xorg.conf

You can simply fix it by re-writing a new xorg.conf file using:

sudo nvidia-xconfig

then doing:

gksudo nvidia-settings

This will open up your nVidia settings, make changes, then choose “save to X config file” and that’s it.
