I have a Lenovo V570. I am running Ubuntu 11.10.
Until a few days ago, I could disable my touchpad with the following command:
xinput set-prop 12 "Device Enabled" 0
But now when I try that command, my system acts like something is holding down the Return key, and I have to restart the system to make it stop (e.g., constant scrolling in shell or gedit; hovering the cursor over an icon or menu using the mouse instantly activates it).
Here's what I get when I do "xinput list":
⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)]
⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ Logitech USB Optical Mouse id=9 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad id=12 [slave pointer (2)]
⎣ Virtual core keyboard id=3 [master keyboard (2)]
↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard id=5 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ Power Button id=6 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ Video Bus id=7 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ Sleep Button id=8 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ Lenovo EasyCamera id=10 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard id=11 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ Ideapad extra buttons id=13 [slave keyboard (3)]
I'm guessing that this has something to do with one of the updates I installed the day or two prior to this problem cropping up.
Any ideas would be appreciated!
