X Keyboard layout problem

I think we need to be able to generate a special xorg.conf.
What if we need a lower/higher resolution than the one the auto configurator determines.

My site (with 300 LTSP clients) has lots of special needs in the xorg.conf, ie resolution, extra fonts, dual screen etc.

Xrandr may be the way to handle resolution after the X server starts.

Subject: X Keyboard layout problem

This is a critical problem for anybody using a non-US keyboard layout with LTSP.

LTSP on Debian uses ltsp-trunk/client/configure-x.sh to generate an xorg.conf and mangle it to use an explicit keyboard layout before running the actual X.

Fedora LTSP uses X autoconfiguration without an xorg.conf.  This seems to be working extremely well, except for cases like this where we need a specific configuration option that differs from the X autoconfiguration.

Any ideas of what we can do?
