    hello,
    make sure it is /etc/X11/XF86config, there is a binary program called xf86config, which is what i am guessing you are editing.

    Unix world, xf86config is NOT the same as XF86Config.

    dude, try this one for size.

    I had the same frustration a bit ago, so I created a launcher that does 'kdesu gedit' just so I can have a root text editor without having to pull up a cli.

    Try it, and you can substitute gedit for whatever. This works in all DE/WM environments
