I have a Logitech MX Anywhere wireless USB mouse which works very well with Ubuntu. However, I would like to disable the touch pad when this mouse is connected. I keep hitting the touch pad with my wrist or thumb and cause the mouse to move to another part of the screen. I am constantly fixing typos.
I've had this problem since I installed Ubuntu 9.10. I'm not sure if it is because the biometrics is part of the touchpad, the way the device is built into the system, or the BIOS which does not let me disable it.
