I'm not sure whether or not support for sorg.conf.d/ is required, possibly 
being ignored according to a distro-specific configuration of some kind. I've 
seen some that have no xorg.conf.d/ by default, others that have an empty 
one, while openSUSE has a populated one but with some files that are nothing 
but comments. Of which distro(s) do you write? Have you tried an xorg.conf 
file with nothing in it but an InputDevice section?
