    A bin directory in your home (/home/simon/bin) is exactly what's needed. It will be automatically included in your executable path.

    Simon, you have to put touchpadconf somewhere in your $PATH, which is not the case with $HOME/.config. I suggest you create $HOME/bin/ and put it there.

    Updated for 12.04. Fn+F9 (disabling/enabling touchpad) now works out of the box, as well as 3-fingered tapping (although advanced configuration still requires using the hook).

    That's right, all of that acpi_call and config file stuff is no longer necessary for bumblebee 3.0. Howto updated accordingly.
