I'm running Ubuntu 12.10 on my MacBook Pro, and I've been using synclient to get the trackpad settings how I want them. I created an xorg.conf in /etc/X11 to make the settings permanent:

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Synaptics Touchpad"
    Driver  "Synaptics"
    Option  "SendCoreEvents"    "true"
    Option  "Device"    "/dev/psaux"
    Option  "Protocol"  "auto-dev"
    Option  "HorizEdgeScroll" "1"
    Option  "MinSpeed"  "0.80"
    Option  "MaxSpeed"  "1.10"
    Option  "AccelFactor"   "0.040"
    Option  "EdgeMotionMinSpeed"    "200"
    Option  "EdgeMotionMaxSpeed"    "200"
    Option  "UpDownScrolling"   "1"
    Option  "SHMConfig" "on"
    Option  "ClickFinger3" "2"
    Option  "TapButton3" "2"
EndSection

The problem is when I log out and log back in, my trackpad is back to the default sensitivity and settings. It doesn't seem to be loading the settings I have in xorg.conf.
