I have a problem with my HP Compaq Tc4400 and the touch screen with a pen.

When I'm running Lubuntu 16.04 with my touchpad, the screen detects that I'm using the pen (that i'm not using) of the touch screen and moves the mouse!

How can I uninstall the Wacom driver (it manage the pen and the tactile mode of my screen)

Thanks in advance

Uninstall just xserver-xorg-input-wacom

sudo apt-get remove xserver-xorg-input-wacom

This will remove just the xserver-xorg-input-wacom package itself.

Uninstall xserver-xorg-input-wacom and it's dependencies

sudo apt-get remove --auto-remove xserver-xorg-input-wacom

This will remove the xserver-xorg-input-wacom package and any other dependant packages which are no longer needed.

Purging your config/data too If you also want to delete your local/config files for xserver-xorg-input-wacom then this will work.

Caution! Purged config/data can not be restored by reinstalling the package.

sudo apt-get purge xserver-xorg-input-wacom

Or similarly, like this xserver-xorg-input-wacom

sudo apt-get purge --auto-remove xserver-xorg-input-wacom
