Please how can i permanently disable the touch screen on my laptop, I have an acer aspire V5 571p on which i just installed CentOS 7 and the laptop is useless because the lower left hand corner of the screen is cracked so the touch screen just kept clicking continously.
I am new to Linux. I went online to search for a solution and everything i saw and tried did not work. i tried to use xinput to disable the screen, obviously i wasn't getting the command syntax right, the touchscreen name is 'ELAN Touchscreen' and the device Id is '9'. can somebody help me our with the correct syntax and will this permanently disable the touchscreen
