But anyways, as I stated above, you have to save the the code I posted as a file named 50-synaptics.conf in the directory /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/, that means you have to create the file yourself.
Done; thanks. The touch pad was about to get NUKED UGH...
Defeat was not the right word.
My point was, open source is about being able to modify the [base] script for the function. If you can do that, THAT'S the first option, if you want only to modify a function.
If you cannot do that (like in Windows), and you have to load a program piggy back to accomplish the function mod, it's not 'pure' open source, in it's most basic sense
