Hello to All, Cannot turn off this ridiculous touchpad.
Who ever invented it should be roasted over a slow fire and let every laptop user driven crazy by him/her baste them in favorite barbecue sauce, while they scream bloody murder!!!
I read every thread in a search for Touchpad/Mouse/Synaptics problems but nothing worked for me.
and unactivated the USB optical mouse which was # 2 mouse.
I then logged out/logged in with USB mouse not working.
Then I went back into Yast and reactivated the mouse.
Logging out/logging in brought the USB mouse back into play.
Then I typed as root…
prompt came back this time with no errors.
The Touch pad is off for this session.
I don’t understand what happened, but the synclient TouchpadOff=1 command never worked before in terminal.
From what I’ve learned from OldCPU, having too many repos or different programs may cause conflicts.
I have gnome and KDE4 with a few other desktops as options to boot into.
Someone tell me what is recommended for a work situation where I am not playing around or experimenting with different desktops.
I am simply trying to find one that works and is boom-boom knock on the table SOLID!!
Right now that seems to be KDE 3.5
Is is recommended to remove the other GUI’s?
Would removing all extra gui’s and programs associated with them a very good move???
Your help is much appreciated,
I’d also like to disable the touchpad (without hacking some system config files!!!) but i don’t even have a mouse option in yast. Only some “Mouse in textconsole” in the hardware section, but that doesn’t help me at all.
Touchbad, trackpoint and my bluetooth mouse are listed in the hardware information in yast, but i can’t do anything there either…
