At that point I don't believe the /etc/X11 directory exists, and needs
to be created in order to move the xorg.conf file to it, the following
command will create the directory and move the file to it in one go,
perhaps this would be a better substitute in place of the mv
After you've created the configuration file, ( cd ~ && Xorg -configure
), and then tested it to make sure it works, ( Xorg -config
~/ ), use this command

install -v -m755 -D /etc/X11/xorg.conf
