synclient can disable the touchpad. And many tools will hide the cursor (my own "Iocane" project for example).
My touchpad is too sensitive, and when typing I consistently loose the cursor...The touchpad is not detected by synaptics, so I can't disable it.So I'm attempting to figure out how to lock the mouse pointer on a keyboard toggle.Any suggestions...?
Those should both be fine. I'm not familiar with all those "initializing built-in extension" lines you get from starting X. It could well be my ignorance of something basic that I have just not had the occasion to see before, but as it is different, it piques my curiosity as to whether those initializations could be relevant to the problem.
