    Talking How to make synclient options permanent?

    Assalamu'alaikum,
    and Hi! to everyone else.

    I like to have 2 finger tap on my laptop perform middle-click and 3 finger tap perform right-click. The command I have found for this is:
    Code:
    synclient TapButton3=3 TapButton2=2
    The only problem is that this dissapears after a reboot. Is there a way I can make this permanent?

    Thanks for the all the help.

    Apparently I found out that it doesn't stay after a Suspend. Any idea how to resolve this?

    Thanks.

    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
    ..........
    Option "TapButton3" "3" 
    Option "TapButton2" "2"
    .........
    EndSection
    if not exist xorg.conf,
    CTRL+Alt+F1 or F2. ...
    sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop
    sudo Xorg configure
    sudo cp /root/xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/
    cd /etc/X11
    sudo nano -w xorg.conf

    sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start
