Disable laptop touchscreen on Arch linux

March 1, 2017

linux arch

This is just my preferred method…

“To disable it via xorg.conf, you simply create a file under the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d directory, for example 99-no-touchscreen.conf with the following content:”

Section "InputClass"
    Identifier         "Touchscreen catchall"
    MatchIsTouchscreen "on"

    Option "Ignore" "on"
EndSection
