Sorry, perhaps I have been insufficiently clear on what my aim is.
1. If you look at the xrandr command (which, as I said, works like a
charm), you will see that I want to put the DisplayPort-0 in the
middle, the DVI-0 on the left, the VGA-0 on the right.
2. Automatic configuration works just fine, with DisplayPort-0 on the
left, DVI-0 in the middle, VGA-0 on the right. But I don't want
that order, because the DisplayPort-0 monitor is new and fabulous,
while the other two monitors are old and not so good.
3. I am trying to make the xorg.conf do what the xrandr command does,
when X starts up.
Perhaps I need to specify that the DVI-0 should be on the left?
Hmm: here's something from Xorg.0.log:
[ 16343.789] (==) Using config file: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf"
[ 16343.789] (==) Using system config directory "/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d"
[ 16343.789] (==) No Layout section. Using the first Screen section.
[ 16343.789] (==) No screen section available. Using defaults.
[ 16343.789] (**) |-->Screen "Default Screen Section" (0)
[ 16343.789] (**) | |-->Monitor "<default monitor>"
[ 16343.789] (==) No device specified for screen "Default Screen Section".
Using the first device section listed.
[ 16343.789] (**) | |-->Device "ati-5450"
[ 16343.789] (==) No monitor specified for screen "Default Screen Section".
Using a default monitor configuration.
So do I need to make a Screen section?
