Disabling Toshiba M70's touchpad


Hi,

I have a Toshiba M70 and am running Fedora Core 3. The touchpad is incredibly sensitive to tapping so anytime I put my finger on it to move the mouse it also clicks, drags etc.

I installed KSynaptics apparently this isn't the type of touchpad that I have. There is also no entry for it in the xorg.conf file, it basically worked out of the box. Does anyone know who I can configure the touchpad?

Thanks

Richard

I have an M70 too. If you press Fn + F9 you disable the touchpad. Cool eh ?
