Synaptics touchpad disable

view story

http://forums.opensuse.org – ;)Have seen a number of threads regarding disabling synaptics touchpads on laptops, Tried several of the suggestions but they didn't work for me. What did work was downloading kcm_touchpad from the KDE4 core repository. It loads into kde's configure desktop. Under keyboard & mouse it puts a touchpad icon which leads to touchpad settings with several choices. I chose to disable the touchpad since I find myself inadvertently moving the pointer. Hope this helps someone. (Distributions)
