X.Org Server is the free and open source implementation of the display server for the X Window System stewarded by the X.Org Foundation.
Xorg is the de facto standard for running graphical applications in Linux and Unix; it does not come preinstalled as part of the base system in Void Linux, so manual installation and some configuration is necessary if you plan to use graphical applications with Void.
The Void repositories contain the
xorg metapackage which include Xorg and its related utilities including X fonts, basic applications, and input/video drivers. To install this metapackage and a basic terminal emulator, type:
# xbps-install xorg xterm
For a more minimal Xorg implementation, the Void repositories also contain a smaller metapackage
Please note that
xorg-minimal does not include everything you need to run an X session. To get up and running using this metapackage, you will need to determine the correct video driver for your hardware
