22.1 X11 Setup with SaX2
The graphical user interface, or X server, handles the communication between
hardware and software. Desktops, like KDE and GNOME, and the wide variety of
window managers, use the X server for interaction with the user. The
graphical user interface is initially configured during installation. To
change the settings afterwards, use the respective module from the YaST
control center or run SaX2 manually from the command line with the command
sax2. The SaX2 main window provides a common interface
for the individual modules from the YaST control center.
