synclient can disable the touchpad. And many tools will hide the cursor (my own "Iocane" project for example).
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.
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...?
