[Solved] Dynamic turn on / off laptop touchpad

Post#1 by xenos » 23 Oct 2018, 11:29

Hi, is it possible to have something like dynamic keyboard pressed to turn on / off laptop touchpad?

The issue is this laptop came without the magic FN button that allow touchpad on / off, I experienced quite a few times, the typing insertion caret suddenly jumps to different place (usually above) when my hand accidentally move over the lappy touchpad.

You can assign keys to execute synclient TouchpadOff=1 or synclient TouchpadOff=0 or add launcher to autostart at /home/guest/.config/autostart
