Fedora 19 Gnome Synaptics Vertical Edge Scroll Permanently

Hi, just playing around and accidentally delete my ~/.config ~/.gnome and ~/.gnome2.
All my settings are reset and my touchpad no longer be able to vertical edge scrolling.
Googling with a little light pointing me to do $ man synaptics. 

The manual page was like hieroglyph but re-read over and over again earned
me some of knowledge to set some of the synaptics properties.
So here is my ~/.profile, i added 2 lines of the properties at the end of the file

xinput --set-prop "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad" "Synaptics Edge Scrolling" 1 1 0

As the manual says:

Synaptics Edge Scrolling
              8 bit (BOOL), 3 values, vertical, horizontal, corner

where the "1 1 0" meaning Vertical "on", Horizontal "on", Corner "off".

Happy scrolling ^^
