If your system is using xinput:

xinput will tell you about the I/O devices you have, giving you

xinput list followed by one of those device numbers will give
you lots of output, so you can be sure you've got the right one.

xinput disable followed by that device number should, in fact,
disable it.

Let us know if you aren't using xinput.
