The inputs.conf file will be saved under the app you were using when you selected Settings->Data Inputs. It's not likely to be in system/local. Try search/local and if it's not there, use your Linux-fu to find the inputs.conf file that changed most recently.
Once you find the file, post the relevant stanza here and we can help you fix it.
