Something strange happened here.  If copying "xorg.conf.new" on
/etc/X11/ and renaming it as "xorg.conf". I can't start X, the HD only
turning.  Now I don't have /etc/X11/xorg.conf.  I can start KDE (not
Gnome).  I don't know which "xorg.conf" I am now running.

I can toggle resolution to increase font size on browser witn
[Ctrl]+[Alt]+[+]
