I have a Lenovo T410, and the touchpad acts 'quirky' occasionally (cursor jumps around screen).

Is a toggle function that allows me to disable the touchpad when I want (and use the eraser pad), and re enable it when I want?


You can look for your touchpad id using "xinput" command. Then disable touchpad by

xinput disable <id>

  • thanks, I would like to maybe create a keyboard shortcut so I can disable and enable as convenient. – tim May 14 '15 at 21:46
