Reset touchpad settings in Ubuntu 10.10 for Macbook 5.1
I followed the instructions at.
It told me to disable the mouse plugin in gnome-settings-daemon.
so I did
gconftool-2 --type boolean --set /apps/gnome_settings_daemon/plugins/mouse/active false
Then told me to edit the xorg.conf.
Pretty much it screwed the touchpad up and when I try to change the settings manually it doesn't take affect.
So does anyone know how to reset everything so I can use the standard mouse plugin?
UPDATE: I figured out how to do it, but for anyone else you simply put.
gconftool-2 --type boolean --set /apps/gnome_settings_daemon/plugins/mouse/active true
Just replace false with true. I'm an idiot.
UPDATE 2: I rebooted and it reverted back...is there a way to make that change permanent?
UPDATE 3: The command line where I just replaced false with true does not work now. It worked once, but once I rebooted the command does not work. I am back to square one. Please help this it annoying.
I want to control the mouse settings with the regular mouse plugin.

Reason: It doesn't stay after reboot.
