Some assistance would be appreciated!
I am running Mint 19 on an Acer Nitro 5 Spin, the touchscreen model.
Problem is, I cracked the screen the other day. So until I get the new screen fitted, I tried to disable the touchscreen with the following:
Code: Select all
# Cracked Screen disabling the kernel module blacklist hid_multitouch
This works a treat, touchscreen disabled and pointer no longer jumping around. Except, pointer no longer moves at all!! It turns out that this mod not only disables the touchscreen, but the trackpad as well.
Which is not so useful, oddly enough.
Has anyone got a better solution to help tide me through until I replace the screen? Or do I just suck it up and buy a mouse?
