View Full Version : MacBook Pro Trackpad Palm Recognition Help

December 7th, 2012, 04:27 AM
Ok, so I am trying to figure out how to have the trackpad on my MacBook Pro 8.1 Ubuntu 64bit to ignore my palm resting on the trackpad... Here's what I've tried:

matthew@MBPUBUNTU:~$ sudo cp /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/my-synaptics.conf
[sudo] password for matthew:
cp: cannot create regular file `/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/my-synaptics.conf': No such file or directory

I believe that's because there isn't a '/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/' directory in a fresh Ubuntu install. This page on the wiki explains where to place X configuration files, and the updated directory locations: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config

I'm guessing you're following along with instructions from somewhere; could you post these or link to them?
