I have just installed FC18 with Cinnamon and I want to set the following settings at a system wide level:
- swap Caps Lock and Ctrl
- have usb mouse be left-handed and touchpad right handed (I'm on a laptop)
So I wrote the following file

(note: I want to set the usb mouse orientatation via GUI, so I specify only the settings for the touchpad, which is the one that is known to never change)
But it seems these settings get ignored. Xorg, according to the log files, does seem to read the xorg.conf.d directory though.
I read somewhere gdm may actually ignore Xorg's config files and sets its own.
I could then set those options via gnome3/gdm, however
- I want to set these details once for all
- I can't find where to set them via Cinnamon.
