I'm attempting to configure my NVIDIA driver to output to a fourth display via the onboard intel graphics, this requires modifications to the Xorg config (traditionally at /etc/X11/xorg.conf) to configure the intel device to use the modesetting driver instead of the intel driver, but I only have the directory-based configuration /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/, I've tried adding an additional 80-custom.conf file with my settings however it doesn't seem to be read when X11 starts?

I've installed the NVIDIA drivers from the official NVIDIA repo (previously I did it "the hard way"), I assume nvidia-xconfig must have changed something in order to make it use the drivers, but I can't actually find this anywhere, all the files in xorg.conf.d are still the default templates. Am I adding this to the wrong place?

My xorg.conf.d looks like:

$ ls -la /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/
