Failed to parse existing X config file

I had a problem with the nvidia-settings tool. It couldn't save to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.
Solution i found here:

remove any old xorg.conf / xorg.conf.backup

sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf 
sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup 

create a new clean xorg.conf

gksu nvidia-xconfig 

start nvida-settings a root and now you can save.

gksu nvidia-settings
