Touchscreen usage

I am using Ubuntu 11:10

I tried to use TouchScreen. It is reversed, i.e. if I touch top left
corner, it take it as bottom right. I referred:

Added option like following (not clear from above link where to add):

Option  "InvertX" "true"

But found no effect.

Used xinput_calibrator, output shown below signature, but problem
remain as such. It says:

copy the snippet into '/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-calibration.conf'

But there is no file there named 99-calibration.conf

Can I get tip for easy setup / calibration of touch screen?

One more issue I observed. When I startr PC, screen display is fine,
but when I issue:

service lightdm restart

screen get shifted to right, some portion not visible and some part blank.
