So, I installed Debian for my first time. While there are lots of items I'm still learning about, one of them is that I can't seem to get my touchpad to work. I've tried following the steps here:https://wiki.debian.org/SynapticsTouchpad
So I installed the synaptics package and it says its enabled under 'Mouse and Touchpad' for System Settings, so I'm not sure what part I'm doing wrong.
Something I think theoretically is the problem but also can't seem to fix is that I can't find a xorg.conf.d folder in etc although I did find one in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d as 50-synaptics as an uneditable file requesting me to not edit it.
How should I proceed? Thank you for all help in advance.
