No options for touchpad control - Asus g74sx laptop - mint12

Post by justinjohn » Thu Dec 01, 2011 12:15 pm

Fairly new laptop... I want to turn off touchpad clicking and disable touchpad while I type (ugh... already had to retype in this post several times because I keep moving the cursor with my big, dumb hands...)

Under the mouse and touchpad controls, there's no touchpad control! I've seen a few different apps in the software manager, some of which I have currently installed, but nothing seems to be helping or enabling the options to contro thel touchpad!

plz halp!
