Subject: general: can't configure Xorg in a new wheezy instalation
Date: Wed, 01 Feb 2012 22:09:08 +0100
Package: general
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,
What led up to the situation?
New instalation, I enter in Gnome3 and don't show correctly the desktop (can't read text nor icons)

What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or ineffective)?
I tried to find xorg.config but don't exist.
I tried (from tty2) 'gdm3 stop' and 'Xorg -configure', but can't configure. 

What was the outcome of this action?
can't configure

What outcome did you expect instead?
a new xorg.config file

Hi,

This report does not seem to describe a widespread problem affecting
many packages in the archive, so "general" was not the right package
for it.  When there is no clear choice for what package to file a bug
against, good answers can be:

 - installation-reports, if this is a report of a new install failing
 - upgrade-reports, if the bug arose due to an upgrade
 - whatever the kind people on debian-user@lists.debian.org say

No big deal.  I'm closing this report because there is not enough
information for a person to act on.

I would suggest booting with the "text" kernel parameter[1], which
will prevent gdm3 from starting, and trying to start X by running
"startx" from the command line.  The xinit package needs to be
installed for this to work.  If it works, please file a report against
gnome with

	reportbug gnome

If it doesn't, please file a report against X with

	reportbug xorg

which should automatically attach some relevant info.

Sorry for the trouble and hope that helps,
Jonathan

[1] In the grub2 menu at boot time, press "e" to see details about the
boot process.  Move to the line starting with "linux" and containing
"quiet", and add "text" as a new word at the end of the line.  Then
boot by pressing ctrl+x.
