Hi. I'm trying to configure X to use the mtrack multitouch driver for the trackpad instead of evdev. However, X doesn't seem to be using my custom configuration.

I don't have an xorg.conf. I have no custom configurations worth mentioning (they're not relevant).

I've got 00-device.conf, 10-evdev.conf and 20-synaptics.conf in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d
The evdev and synaptics configuration files were automatically generated and I haven't changed them.

No matter how I configure mtrack, it doesn't seem to affect anything. I even tried disabling the touchpad through mtrack. The touchpad was still working so I know mtrack wasn't working properly.

My Xorg.0.log shows that mtrack does load.

Also, may not mean anything, but I get a segmentation fault when I stop X.

Solved. Evdev seems to be grabbing the device. Commented out the relevant sections in 10-evdev.conf and put my mtrack configuration in 09-mtrack.conf
The driver loads now and responds to configuration changes.
