Ubuntu – Where did /usr/lib/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-synaptics.conf go

12.04mactouchpadxorg

On my Macbook I can only move the cursor while also pressing the touchpad after a default install. A per login session fix is to run "synclient FingerLow=10" and "synclient FingerHigh=20".

In order to make this change permanent I'm supposed to do add the following in the tochpad section of /usr/lib/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-synaptics.conf. But I do not have this file.

Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "touchpad catchall"
    MatchIsTouchpad "on"
    MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
    Driver "synaptics"
    Option "FingerLow" "10"
    Option "FingerHigh" "20"
EndSection

Where do I need to apply this change?

This says, you have to edit /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf file.But the lines inside that file says,

# DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE, your distribution will likely overwrite
# it when updating. Copy (and rename) this file into
# /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d first.
# Additional options may be added in the form of
#   Option "OptionName" "value"

So don't do that.Just copy the contents and then rename this file into xorg.conf.d and it looks like /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d.Now place the below lines on that file and save it.

Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "touchpad catchall"
    MatchIsTouchpad "on"
    MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
    Driver "synaptics"
    Option "FingerLow" "10"
    Option "FingerHigh" "20"
EndSection
