Disable Touch Pad when Mouse plugged in

Postby mdw1982@mdw1982.com on Thu Nov 13, 2008 10:53 am

Hi All,

I was wondering if anyone new the method to use to disable a laptop touch pad when a USB mouse is connected?

I've got a Dell Inspiron 1501 running Mint Linux 5/KDE3. I've been everywhere in my KDE configuration and have been able to find anything that would make that possible. I thought perhaps there's something I'm missing.

thanks a bunch,

Mark

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
