(SOLVED)Touch-pad Issues
« on: December 26, 2017, 01:37:34 pm »
Is there a way to disable the touch-pad when typing through peppermints settings, cause this HP laptop of mine is almost unusable if I don't. I have found a program called Touchpad-Indicator but it must load up at start up.

If you go to Menu, Preferences, Peppermint Control Centre, under the Keyboard & Pointer tab - there are touchpad options.

Take a look there.

There isn't any option for disabling the touch-pad,  anybody got a good tutorial on creating a configuration file for synaptics driver?
