Hmmm...  Martin, if you still have a Xorg.log it means you have a really 
old installation, or you installed syslog-ng and integrated it with 
journalctl, something that is not standard anymore. Heck, OpenSUSE just 
removed it of Tumbleweed, it's a sign of the times.

Alfredo, as Arch uses systemd/journalctl, you need to use the command:

     journalctl -b0 _EXE=/usr/lib/xorg-server/Xorg

If you are not in the systemd-journal group, you may need to run the 
command in a root shell or with sudo.
