Re: Option to disable touchpad when mouse is connected or when keyboard is used has disappeared :-(

I suspect its something to do with the update from the 3.1 to 3.2 kernel.

I've found under 3.2 my touchpad now simulates a click when tapped (which it used to under 2.6 but never did under 3.1 and to be honest I prefer it disabled).
I've also found touch screens which worked under 3.1 no longer do under 3.2

Not sure what they've done.

In my KDE4 based laptop I was using the option disabling the touchpad when mouse is connected and when keyboard is used. What's interesting: this option was available when touchpad configuration was displayed separately in the "lost & found" section of "system settings" in KDE.

After certain update a few weeks ago (I'm using debian/testing) this option disappeared. The touchpad configuration is available in the "input devices" section, but no possibility to switch it off automatically when mouse or keyboard is used is listed.

Unfortunately typing without this option is error prone, a the cursos jumps randomly when touchpad is accidentally touched...

How can I get this useful option back?
