 +Very simple, just install:
 +<​code>​
 + sudo apt-get install gpointing-device-settings
 +</​code>​
 +
 +Execute:
 +<​code>​
 +gpointing-device-settings
 +</​code>​
 +Select TouchPad off.
 +
 +For some reason this doesn'​t do it or you experience that it re-enables it self, try this:
 +
 +<​code>​
 + ​xinput set-int-prop "​SynPS/​2 Synaptics TouchPad"​ "​Device Enabled"​ 8 0
 +</​code>​
 +
 +To find the name of your device run:
 +<​code>​
 +hl@hl-laptop:​~$ xinput list |grep -i touchpad
 +"​SynPS/​2 Synaptics TouchPad"​ id=7 [XExtensionPointer]
 + Type is TOUCHPAD
 +</​code>​
