Disable Touch Screen On A Netbook Laptop?


I installed Manjaro KDE 64Bit onto an old ASUS Netbook laptop.
I want to disable the touch screen.
The BIOS does not have an option to do the above.
Anyone know how to do the above?



$ xinput list

and find your touchscreen device and take note on its id, should be under “Virtual core pointer” section. Then:

$ xinput list-prop <id>

find the propery “Device enabled” and again take note on its id. Finally:

$ xinput set-prop <touchscreen id> <device enabled id> 0

done. Your touchscreen should be disabled now. Feel free to make a systemd service, startup script or udev rule that executes above lines to automatically disable it at GUI boot or whatever timing you wish.

had to install xinput and reboot - have below and don’t know what to do next:

Sorry, I missed 1 letter, should be xinput list-props.
