• Mouse & Touchpad: Disable Touchpad?


    Why are there absolutely no options under Mouse & Touchpad under Settings in GNOME, I want to be able to disable the touchpad like you can do using other DEs, for example, under Cinnamon, the options for both M&T are there.

    So, how can I disable the touchpad, I may have to reinstall Antergos a third – first time I chose Cinnamon, second time GNOME… – time to go with a more full featured DE that gives those options under settings.

  • All the settings you are looking for should be there. I really don t know why there are absolutely no options for you. There is even an extention to have the enable/disable settings in your top bar…

  • I didn t say you dont know what you see. Is it the latest 3.20?

  • How do I check that? I just installed Antergos for the first time yesterday, went with the Cinnamon DE, but I liked the Gnome DE that you get from the Live CD, so I decided to reinstall Antergos this morning and chose Gnome.

    EDIT: Found the version: 3.20.1

    Michael

  • Did 3.20-1 solve the issue?

  • @anarch 3.20.1 is the version that comes with the latest – I believe – ISO for Antergos. I didn’t do anything to it, as I am new to this Linux distro, everything is default.

    Michael

  • Well, even if it wasn t the latest version in the iso, Cnchi would still have downloaded the latest one for you. I can only guess that for some reason your touchpad was not recognized. Some computers have a functional keys combinations that disable and enable touchpad.
    What make is it?
    Also, googling your issue returned me this…

  • About the extention. On the top right hand corner, click the “Allow” button. You may need to refresh the page afterwards.

    I have an ASUS G75VW. I have tried the key combo [Fn + f9], and while it shows the disabled touchpad on the image, it doesn’t disable it at all.

    The touchpad is clearly being recognised, but I cannot disable it. Cinnamon, like I said, had the options to disable it, but you can see what Gnome is giving me.

    Michael

  • Does the extention take any effect at all?

  • After playing with the extension, I finally found the right settings to get it to work. But, I shouldn’t need to use an extension, it should be accessible through Mouse & Touchpad in settings.

    Thank you.

    So, I’ll mark this solved for now.

    Michael

  • Right you are. At least you got it to work.
    Cheers!

  • Though solved…
    "After the update to Gnome 3.20, I had the problem of my Asus laptop’s touchpad losing features like disabling tap-to-click and it no longer showed up as configurable under Settings > Touchpad.

    I was able to fix it this way…

    sudo pacman -S xf86-input-libinput
    sudo pacman -R xf86-input-synaptics
    sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf ~/
    

    Reboot."
