I can't disable my touchpad on my Asus 1005HA netbook running a fully updated F11 i586. I can change other settings, like tapping and scrolling just fine but disabling the touchpad is a no go. Makes it difficult when you're trying to do a lot of typing and the mouse just moves around on you. =)
I've tried hitting the touchpad disable button and running `synclient TouchpadOff=1`, but no dice. Interestingly, though, I can use syndaemon to get my touchpad to disable for a short time while typing. This is an okay solution, but I'd really just like to be able to turn it off on demand.
Any suggestions? I can provide additional information if that would be helpful.
