[SOLVED] Disable touchpad when mouse is plugged in

Hi all!

Is there any chance to automatically disable the touchpad when i plug in my mouse? is it possible with a udev rule?

i know there's an indicator plugin for gnome, but i'm using kde/i3/openbox.


best regards!

For KDE, there's 'synaptiks' in the AUR. It does a great job.

It's also possible using udev rules. However, on KDE, stick with 'synaptiks'
