how do i disable the touchpad and use only usb mouse
i have an inspiron 4000. i picked it up at a garage sale for $30. it works fine. asside from a broken hinge and a damaged trackstick.
i installed ubunto 5.04 on it. went fine. every thing works except the trackstick/touchpad. when i type, i think because of the impact on the keypad, the pointer drifts away and i am not able to control it until i fiddle with the trackstick.
the trackstick is broken. there is no actual stick there.
what i want to do is disable the trackstick.
i have spent some time on google. and in these forums but, what i have found doesn't work or doesn't make sense.
i have commented out the sections in the xorg.conf file that refer to the touchpad/trackstick. but they both still work.
what do i have to do to disable it???
do you need anymore info?
I have same problem too! :D But now, I know how I can disable it. We just have to set our touchpad as "CorePointer", and our USB mouse as "SendCoreEvents". But, we have to add the "TouchpadOff" option in touchpad section.
Oo... ya.. but, we have to load synaptics driver to xorg.conf

i love you...that worked.
the track stick still works.
anybody have an idea as to how i can disable it too?
did your track stick use your /dev/psaux ?
can we delete (or just rename it) this device to disable our hardware connected to /dev/psaux ? :D
