Hi Doesn't work for some reason.

However,  the following does.

type   blacklist psmouse
save to /etc/modproebe.d/blacklist-touchpad.conf


turn on or off from keyboard
sudo modprobe -i psmouse
and to turn it back off while still logged in:
$ sudo modprobe -r psmouse

Thank you for your efforts
cheers the kiwi
