[SOLVED] disable touchpad, but not scrolling and buttons

Hi all!

Is it possible to disable my touchpad, without disabling scrolling and the right and left click button gesture?

I have this terrible touchpad version without physical keys on my Thinkpad W540 and
I want to start using my trackpoint.

With

synclient TouchpadOff=0 

I can disable the whole touchpad. Hence also scrolling is disabled.

And I have already looked at the command list with

synclient -l 

, but I don't know what solves my issue.

Does anybody has a solution?

Thanks in advance smile

I was able to solve it with https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Li … e_touchpad.

First find the <name> of the touchpad with

xinput list

and then disable it with

xinput disable <name>

.
