Re: need to disable laptop touchpad completely: 80+ year old debian user touches it by accident

I assume that there is no disable button on the touchpad itself.

Try using 'tpconfig --sleep=1'. On many touch pads it will disable it.

If it works, to make it permanent do the following as root:

1. Create file named /etc/init.d/killtouchpad

The file should contain:
/usr/bin/tpconfig --sleep=1

2. "chmod +755 /etc/init.d/killtouchpad"

3. "update-rc.d killtouchpad start 98 S ." (note the dot it is important)
