comment Linux Mint 12 two finger scrolling
great thanks! according to : wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Touchpad_Synaptics i shouldn't edit xorg.conf but instead put things in a xorg.conf.d/ directory, which i tried to no avail. figured it was worth a shot even though i know that arch is a different distro. also i did a reinstall, which fixed my sound icon troubles, but now the synclient commands don't even seem to enable the two-finger scrolling anymore like they used to, so the startup script idea wasn't working either. grr... pulls hair!

well i did a reinstall last night, and that solved a different problem i was having (sound icon and usb sound) but still leaves this one. running your sudo command returns: /etc/X11/xorg.conf: Permission denied the links seem to indicate that i can't run that while X is active

i do have a xorg.conf but not a xorg.conf.d folder. i tried putting the inputClass secion into xorg.conf but on reboot only got a black screen. have to jet right this second, but will look more closely at your links later.

comment Linux Mint 12 two finger scrolling
the answer was definitely no. got a black screen had to boot into a live session and restore the copy i had made of xorg.conf. i did get this working once with some synclient commands but it didn't "stick" between reboots

i read some of the .conf files in the /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d folder and they do seem to indicate examples. but there is no /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d folder, are the changes meant to go in /etc/X11/xorg.conf ?
