Questions about xorg.conf and modprobe
I have a couple of questions about my touchpad. I wanted to enable tap on my touchpad. I edited the xorg.conf file, but I noticed that no matter what values I gave for the touchpad options, it didn't do any good. Finally, what worked for me was setting the modprobe parameter. I did this:
modprobe -r psmouse
# modprobe psmouse proto=bare
I understand this is removing the psmouse kernel and then adding it and setting the proto parameter to bare.
Does anyone know why editing the xorg.conf file didn't work and modprobe worked?
Also, how can I make this permanent? When I shut down my computer and restart, I have to reset the proto parameter.
Thanks in advance!!
