Due to lots of chocolate cake getting into my computer my touchpad doesn't work very well (along with the rest of the computer) any more, so I have disabled 'Tap to click', however this seems to have only disabled it for when I am logged in, how can I do this for the login screen too (before I have logged in)? I am running Ubuntu GNOME 15.10 with GNOME 3.18.
Have a look at this post also in askubuntu:
Basically, you got 2 shots:
- Edit the
/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev.conffile and adding
"Ignore" "on"to the end of the section with the touchscreen identifier
- Disable the xinput device (
xinput disable <number of device>)
