Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Fix Released
Nominated for Hardy by Andrea Corbellini

Bug Description

If I edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf and I write "Screenn" instead of "Screen" X Window will not start. If I'm able with vim or nano I can simply revert the mistake, but new users cannot do this without problems.

Using the current Ubuntu Jaunty Jackalope, I made the typo suggested in the bug report, and was able to use the "Ubuntu is running in low graphics mode" X emergency fixing GUI prompts to restore a working default X configuration without ever dropping to a text console.

Therefore, I am setting this bug to Fix Released status.
