VirtualBox Extensions for Linux not building xorg.conf properly.

Reported by: dfatvb Owned by:
Component: guest additions Version: VirtualBox 4.2.4
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: Linux Host type: Windows


It was driving me nuts, x wouldn't start after installing the extensions. I'm not a linux guy, so it took a while but found it was missing adding this section to the xorg.conf file it creates:

Section "InputDevice"

Identifier "Keyboard[0]" Driver "kbd"

Option "XkbModel" "pc105" Option "XkbLayout" "it"

Option "Protocol" "Standard" Option "CoreKeyboard"

I assume you talk about the Guest Additions. Which Linux distribution is that? It shouldn't be necessary to create any xorg.conf file for recent Linux distributions.

Could you please also upload a copy of xorg.conf as it was created by the Additions installer, and after your changes to make it work?
