Disable Touchscreen

Postby Jmurrs on Mon Feb 18, 2013 3:17 pm

My dell xps has a glitchy problem with its touchscreen and it drives me crazy and I need to disable it.
I am running mint 14 cinnamon desktop.
I've tried xinput set-prop 13 "Device Enabled" 0 and that does not seem to turn off the touchscreen.

Type in the terminal:
Code: Select all
xinput list

and see what shows. Somewhere under "virtual core pointer" the name of your touchscreen device should appear (on my ASUS X202E it's "Atmel Atmel maXTouch Digitizer")

Then type
Code: Select all
xinput set-prop <device-name> "Device Enabled" 0

(So in my case it was
Code: Select all
xinput set-prop "Atmel Atmel maXTouch Digitizer" "Device Enabled" 0

And that's it.

If you you want to enable it back type
Code: Select all
xinput set-prop <device-name> "Device Enabled" 1
