After installing Ibex, the modifications I've made in my xorg file for
my touchpad have been lost -- specifically the width of my vertical scroll.

Edit: My xorg file looks like this:

# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
#
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
# sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

# commented out by update-manager, HAL is now used
#Section "InputDevice"
# Identifier "Generic Keyboard"
# Driver "kbd"
# Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
# Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
# Option "XkbLayout" "us"
#EndSection

# commented out by update-manager, HAL is now used
#Section "InputDevice"
# Identifier "Configured Mouse"

# Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
# Option "Protocol" "auto-dev"
# Option "HorizEdgeScroll" "0"
# Option "RightEdge" "5950"
# Option "SHMConfig" "on"
#EndSection

I have Gsynaptic installed, and SHMConfig enabled (used this guide to do so) (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SynapticsTouchpad).

I've followed this post (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=970277&highlight=touchpad) and still have no result. I've tried using different encoding too, just in case.

Presently, my vertscroll.fdi looks like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<deviceinfo version="0.2">
<device>
<match key="input.x11_driver" string="synaptics">
<merge key="input.x11_options.RightEdge" type="string">5950</merge>
</match>
</device>
</deviceinfo>

Please help!

Oddly enough, when I turned my laptop back on today the problem seemed to have been resolved. The above two entries have remained the same. I've changed my 11-x11-synaptics.fdi.


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<deviceinfo version="0.2">
<device>
<match key="info.capabilities" contains="input.touchpad">
<match key="info.product" contains="Synaptics TouchPad">
<merge key="input.x11_driver" type="string">synaptics</merge>
<!-- Arbitrary options can be passed to the driver using
the input.x11_options property since xorg-server-1.5. -->
<!-- EXAMPLE:
<merge key="input.x11_options.LeftEdge" type="string">120</merge>
-->
</match>


<match key="info.product" contains="AlpsPS/2 ALPS">
<merge key="input.x11_driver" type="string">synaptics</merge>
</match>

<match key="info.product" contains="appletouch">
<merge key="input.x11_driver" type="string">synaptics</merge>
</match>

<match key="info.product" contains="bcm5974">
<merge key="input.x11_driver" type="string">synaptics</merge>

</match>
</match>
