Xorg.conf Mouse configuration issue


Hi,

I have a Logitech Marble Mouse that works fine except for the speed and acceleration. I can fix this in the terminal by typing in xorg m 5 1, The problem is that it doesn't save anywhere so I have to do this each time I boot up. I can't find xorg.conf. I tried to create it with gedit in usr\share\xll\xorgconfd (or something like that) but it wouldn't let me save it saying I don't have permission. Is there some way to do this with the sudo command? I'm guessing that would work since It always asks for a password. Is there another easier way to do this? I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 desktop. Thanks in advance.

Hal

Thank you. That really helped. One of the answers on that page had a link to a page with all of the options on it. The stock sliders in the settings weren't allowing my pointer to go fast enough but by adding these settings to 50-vmmouse.conf it trucks across the screen right smartly now.
Option "AccelerationNumerator" "7"
Option "AccelerationDenominator" "1"
Option "AccelerationThreshold" "1"
