Panasonic CF18 with XUbuntu12, how to disable the touchpad mouseclick


My new laptop is an (secondhand) Toughbook CF18. Installation of XUbuntu12 (LTS) was smooth and everything seems to be recogniced just fine. I have however two useability problems.

My one problem is that the touchpad is far too sensitive to an touch with my fingers. I get a lot of unwanted mouseclicks and drag&drop when i just want to move the cursor.

Is there an easy way to disable the mouseclick events from the touchpad so that i have to explicitly press the button when i want to click somewhere?


Thank you for your suggestions.

Check out

Make a backup of /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf file before making any edits or changing the file.

You could try installing gsynaptics in xubuntu but I read

No one has answered that in a year.
