[SOLVED] 6.0: I cannot disable touchpad on my laptop.

Post by const451 » 2011/08/24 04:35:19

I cannot disable touchpad on Dell Latitude E6510. If I go to mouse preferences, there is no Touchpad tab.

On Ubuntu I ran this command

xinput set-prop 14 122 0

Is there a similar way in CentOS to disable touchpad.

Thanks!

Due to the antiquated nature of the forum software, an end-user is unable to do so. We advise users to add either [SOLVED] or {RESOLVED] to the subject line of the last post then, eventually, one of the moderating team will notice and edit the opening post accordingly. I have now performed the deed for you -- and posterity.
