Yes correct. The changes cheatcode should save your changes but in your bootcode i didn't see any changes= so i assumed you weren't saving changes.
You "a s s u m e"d!! You do know what "assume"ing does, right?

No. If you run the Razor Session Configurator after logging in as root, then the file is created in /root/.config/autostart/synclient.desktop.
Really!! You didn't get the error? hmmm I followed your steps to the letter, including drive sda6. I wonder why I did.

Looking forward to it.
#### MORE ELEGANT SOLUTION
For now i have the perfect solutions for you. To test it please open up a console and enter:
This should started the syndaemon which waits for keys to be pressed and disables the touchpad. 1 second after you stop typing the touchpad is activated again.
Oh, I like the sound of this. Can the 1 second be changed to 2 or 3?
If this works then it should be as simple as making the autostart file. This time let's do it manually to make certain the file is created.
Code: Select all
[ ! -d /root/.config/autostart ] && mkdir -p /root/.config/autostart # If no autostart folder exists then create it
cat > /root/.config/autostart/syndaemon.desktop << EOF
Exec=syndaemon -i 1 -d
That's all. The first line creates the autostart folder if it doesn't already exist. EOF
The second creates the syndaemon.desktop file and adds everything between the EOF (End of file) tag.
Wow!! I like what can be done in terminal mode. But this "command" [ ! -d /root/.config/autostart ] with brackets does what?? I've never encounter a command in brackets.

Many thoughts crossing my mine on that.

not as often.
BTW This new approach seems to have helped but not 100% The cursor still jumps to the pointer regardless of where it is periodically, but definitely
Code: Select all
root@porteus:~# [ ! -d /root/.config/autostart ]
root@porteus:~# mkdir -p /root/.config/autostart
root@porteus:~# cat > /root/.config/autostart/syndaemon.desktop << EOF
