You don't really want xorgconfig though it should exist in /usr/local/bin.
What you want is 'Xorg -configure'
Note the uppercase 'X' on Xorg and in the 'X -config' command below.
Then, after it makes the xorg.conf.new file in the home directory (root's -
hopefully you are doing this from root) you run 'X -config xorg.conf.new'
to check it out.
NOTE: that Xorg and X are also in /usr/local/bin. That needs to be
in your path.
After that, edit the xorg.conf.new file and add in a subsection "Display"
under the screen section to give the resolution for the monitor screen
under the correct depth level. Looks something like:
Viewport 0 0
but with your correct depth and Modes.
Then, get rid of (comment out) all the other subsection "Display" blocks
that don't apply to your machine. You could have more than one, but
generally not on an LCD screen.
Finally, copy that xorg.conf.new file to /etc/X11/xorg.conf
After that, it is a matter of playing around with your window manager
and desktop utility.
