This question already has an answer here:
I want to automatically disable my touchpad when I use a mouse. I have tried touchpad indicator which didn't work (error message, couldn't install) and configuration using synaptics driver but it's too complicated for me :(
Another thing, if I don't use a mouse I would like to configure the touchpad settings, because "disable touchpad while typing" doesn't help and it is really impossible to type right now.
Is there any easy way to change the settings for the touchpad?
