Any idea how to turn off (temporarily) the touch pad of a laptop (mine is Dell 1535)?
Sorry for the thread, you can close it. I’ve searched the forum and found that I could add
alias tpoff='synclient TouchpadOff=1' alias tpon='synclient TouchpadOff=0'
to .bashrc file and then just type tpon/tpoff in console to turn on/off the touchpad. It’s really cool. If only I could bind those to the “event” of plugging my usb mouse in?
