I was playing with the file: usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf and apparently broke it.

When I try to start Lubuntu the system starts from Grub but the desktop environment won't start. The screen just stays black.

How can I fix this? (I have little experience working command line and I can't seem to edit that file to undo what I did since it is a read only file system file. Nor can I delete it.)

I tried sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg-input-synaptics but that didn't work.

Thanks. This is a dual boot - with WinXP box.
