Saving to a Directory

Asked by MetungKP on 2011-05-30

According to this link (below) I need to copy my touchscreen configurations, so that I don't have to reconfigure each time I want to use my touchscreen.
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xinput-calibrator/+bug/776946

The directory is - /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/

I need to copy this snippet (below) in to this directory:

Section "InputClass"
 Identifier "calibration"
 MatchProduct "Fujitsu Component USB Touch Panel"
 Option "Calibration" "128 3826 264 3960"
EndSection

I found the directory but its read only and I'm unsure as to how to do it in Terminal.

Thanks!
KP

gksudo gedit /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d//99-calibration.conf
and copy/paste snippet text
You rely a lot on people in this forum. Could you make some effort to learn more of Linux and be more autonomous.

I appreciate all the help. I've only been using Linux for 5 months. I always read up and research before I post my questions. I apologize for posting too many questions. This will be my last question to you folks. I decided to dump Microsoft because of the help here, so please don't think I appreciate all the help.
