Cannot find a common directory
I cannot find my /etc/X11 directory to edit XF86Config. I'm trying to fix the scroll bar on my mouse.

What distro and version are your running? Most distros switched to xorg.conf quite a while ago.

Slackware 12.2
I think your right. I've seen xorg.conf as I was installing this OS.

You can search for the file "xorg.conf" by first doing


to become root, then


to update the database for using "locate", then


locate xorg.conf
to see where the xorg.conf file is.

Even for systems with xorg there should be an /etc/X11 directory, for plain compatibility reasons. But do not look for XF86Config, because that one has been obsoleted. You need to edit xorg.conf for any changes.
