Nothing I recognize. Something else you can try is putting a file of whatever
name you please in $HOME, then export 'XORGCONFIG=whatever' in .bashrc. If
that doesn't work either, maybe there's a bug or the ignore option for
synaptics has been removed. Or, maybe Mint is using the libinput driver
instead of the synaptics driver and there's a whole different methodology
required to disable it.
