I failed to pay attention to your mention of /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d. 
Making changes there are subject to being overwritten by package management 
system updates. These modified files need to be placed in 
/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ or combined into /etc/X11/xorg.conf.
"The wise are known for their understanding, and pleasant
words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
