Running a P70 thinkpad and I’m old school… the trackpad keeps getting in the way… I’m running KDE and tried to disable it in the settings with no luck.
I did find the XINPUT command and when I list properties and identify my trackpad, I can easily disable it.
Unfortunately I have to enter the XINPUT command each time I reboot or login.
Is there a way to automate this command at startup? I’ve followed a suggestion of placing a script, “startup.sh”, command file in /etc/init.d That did not seem to solve my issue. Additionally I have made a copy of that script in my home user .local file. But I still have to execute the script to get it to work.
I’d like to automate it so it automatically disables the trackpad after each reboot. Any suggestions?
The command is : xinput set-prop 10 “Device Enabled” 0 <— this disables the trackpad.
