No option in mint 21.3 to have touchpad Disabled while mouse attached

Post by Fran1974 »

There is no option in mint 21.3 to have touchpad Disabled while mouse is attached.
If you turn mousepad off, it stays off every reboot, so if you ever reboot w/o a mouse, you are screwed.
Please add back that control panel option

Are you saying it was removed from MATE?
Tell Mint developers, not sure how much control they have over MATE:
