I have Ubuntu with latest KDE on a Lenovo Z570 with Optimus.
I've installed drivers and bumblebee, both integrated and nVidia cards are working perfect (not the issue).
I have a RAT 9 Wirless mouse, which I tried to configure and this is the problem.
I needed to edit
Xorg.conf in order to make it work. But apparently I did not have any file
Xorg.conf in either
/usr/share/X11. By the way,
Xorg.conf.d? I've looked for both but I've found none.
So I created the folder
/etc/X11/Xorg.conf.d/ and created the file
910-rat.conf, where I created the
Section "InputClass" with the
Button Mapping and everything. Saved, rebooted, got stuck.
After the boot logo (5 charging dots) I get the Black Screen.
Ctrl+Alt+F5, I've tried editing the startup parameters in Grub, with
nomodeset instead of
quiet splash, and the
init=/bin/bash trick ... but to no avail.

I just found out drivers from nVidia are not recommended, I don't remember if I installed from nvidia or xswap...something repo, or both.
But what do I do now? I would prefer not to reinstall Ubuntu, as my KDE setting took me like a week to set, and I don't know where they are stored, as I don't have a
Xorg.conf file. Why don't I have it?
