 #  Introduction  
   
 The purpose of this document is to guide the reader on how to install the modular Xorg.   
   
 #  No X installed  #  No X installed
   
 Assuming you have just made a clean install of NetBSD and you have not installed the X11 sets, you should do the following:   Assuming you have just made a clean install of NetBSD and you have not installed the X11 sets, you should do the following:

 Provided that your pkgsrc tree lies in `/usr/pkgsrc`, type:   Provided that your pkgsrc tree lies in `/usr/pkgsrc`, type: 
           
     # cd /usr/pkgsrc/x11/modular-xorg-server      # cd /usr/pkgsrc/meta-pkgs/modular-xorg
     # make install      # make install
           
   
 ##  Install xorg apps  ##  Configure Xorg
       
     # cd /usr/pkgsrc/meta-pkgs/modular-xorg-apps  
     # make install  
       
   
 ##  Install xorg fonts  Usually no configuration is necessary. To start X you use:
       
     # cd /usr/pkgsrc/meta-pkgs/modular-xorg-fonts  
     # make install  
       
   
 ##  Install xorg input device      $ startx
       
     # cd /usr/pkgsrc/x11/xf86-input-keyboard  
     # make install  
       
   
 And:   ## Additional configuration
       
     # cd /usr/pkgsrc/x11/xf86-input-mouse  
     # make install  
       
   
 ##  Install xorg video driver  Additional adjustments can be made in ~/.xinitrc and ~/.Xresources.
   For example, you may want to use a different terminal emulator font, such as pkgsrc/fonts/overpass.
   
 In order to determine the appropriate driver for you, list the `/usr/pkgsrc/x11/xf86-video-*` files. For example, if you would need the nvidia driver, search for it:   ## ~/.Xresources
       
     # ls -ld xf86-video-* | grep nv  
     # drwxr-r-x  4 root wheel  512 Aug 26 16:17 xf86-video-nv  
       
   
 and then install it:   To do so, we can add this line to ~/.Xresources:
       
     # cd /usr/pkgsrc/x11/xf86-video-nv  
     # make install  
       
   
 ##  Configure Xorg      *font: xft:overpass mono:size=12
   
 Run as root the xorgconfig(1) utility to create an xorg.conf file. Or use command:   For this to take effect, we must do merge it into the database.
       
     # X -configure      $ xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources
   
   To do this at every X startup, we can add it to ~/.xinitrc.
   
   <!-- XXX refer to further documentation on .xinitrc -->
   
   ## ~/.xinitrc
   
   An example ~/.xinitrc to run a window manager and configure keyboard layout:
   
       xrdb merge ~/.Xresources                                            # respect ~/.Xresources configuration
   
       setxkbmap -option grp:alt_shift_toggle us,il        # two keyboard options, US keyboard and IL,
                                                                                   # with alt+shift as a toggle option
           
       openbox                                                                     # run your favourite window manager.
   
 This will create /root/xorg.conf.new, which should be copied to /etc/X11/xorg.conf and possibly edited.
