ASUS ROG G750 and Fn-Keys and Touchpad

Manjaro Linux 64-Bit, XFCE-Version 4.16

on my Asus ROG G750JS i can’t disable my touchpad by using Fn+F9.
I can only disable the touch function in the mouse-/touchpad settings.

is there a fix for this know?

I’ve personally had this same issue on every single laptop I’ve owned while using Linux. So I don’t know if it’s solvable for you or not.

You can probably assign that key via a shortcut or something to do:

To do what? With witch script ein can disable the Touchpad?

Greetings Heiko

To give you a script, we need to have a full inxi output, but if you’re running xorg you can:

xinput list

and then:

xinput list-props NN

where NN is the number that the list command gave you for your touchpad and then:

xinput set-prop NN MM 0

where MM is the number for the Device Enabled setting and 0 to disable it.
