  1. In version 10.04 there is no option to disable touchpad completely, only while typing. I think they should add it back. I hate my touchpad, I use a real mouse.

  2. Can you disable in 9.10? It only appears to let you disable while typing. I’d like to turn mine right off because I use a mouse and I always touch pad while typing. It is very frustrating…

  3. Does this work with the regular desktop edition too. I have seen many people use the desktop edition and have the same issue.

    suggestion :- if possible show the preceding screenshots as well so people know what to look for. Sometimes it is easier.

  4. Thanks for giving us information about how can we disable our touch pad in ubuntu Netbook Remixv. I appreciate your effort for this.

    Thanks & Regards
