I missed most of the thread and dunno why Mint nukes config paths, but you can probably use synclient to adjust the touchpad at runtime (in doubt from some login script)

synclient FingerLow=35
synclient FingerHigh=40

play with the values until it's nice for you. Keep Low below High.

There's also
synclient PalmDetect=1

for the clumsy among us =)
