Wasn't sure if this has been reported. Mods can move it.
Tried to run pclos-lxde-mini-2012.12 ( live via USBdrive) on Toshiba netbook NB205 and could not get any xserver. Tried vga=normal, 791,788 all kinds of stuff. Tried the auto setup (XFdrake) that comes up in text mode - nothing. Then warning says error in line 8 of /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d. There are several files in there including touchpad driver.
Something told me to look in 50-synaptics.conf and first line is:
#fixed ( I remember there was an issue with the left edge and right edge syntax in one of the several touch pad fixes posted a while back)
on line 8, 9 (I think), there is a pair of quotes on the right side of options:
Option "LeftEdge" "120"" <--
Option "RightEdge" "830"" <--
when it should be
Option "LeftEdge" "120" <--
Option "RightEdge" "830" <--
nano'd the file, restarted x, loaded up fine and am going to give pclos lxde-mini a whirl.
Hope this helps someone
