Although I don't use the touchscreen in Ubuntu, because it is a capacitive display I sometimes accidentally touch the display area which causes any text in dialogue windows to automatically highlight when I hover my cursor over the text in dialogue boxes, and in Nautilus I can't open any folders. The problem results in me having to log out and log back in. Is there a way I can disable the touchscreen?
