HP g60-235DX Laptop has a button above the touchpad to turn it off but xenialpup64 and tahrpup64 ignore it. I can go to settings/Mouse Keyboard Wizzard and turn it off but that only sticks for the session, is there a script that I can put in startup to kill it. This laptop sits on a slanted desktop stand and always has a mouse plugged in. I never use the pad, and am sick of it getting in my way.
thanks pete

You can select what keyboard setup model you are using.
mouse/keyboard wizard>advanced configuration>keyboard model

There are several for HP.
May not be one specifically for your laptop, but maybe one that is for a HP laptop will work.
This may get that touchpad off/on switch to work.

I really did not think it would be that easy, but had to try it.
Thanks for trying!

This should do it:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
synclient TouchpadOff=1

MochiMoppel,
Bingo! Winner Winner! That did the trick. I knew it had to be a simple script to kill it.
Thank you so much
pete
