Touch pad on Dell 1535

Any idea how to turn off (temporarily) the touch pad of a laptop (mine is Dell 1535)?:slight_smile:

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? :stuck_out_tongue:
