I have a Dell Inspiron 15 5558 laptop computer. I run Linux Mint 18
exclusively. I use the following scripts to turn the touch pad on and off.
To turn off:
#Turn Laptop Pad off
To turn on:
#turn laptop pad on
The last line can be run in a terminal also. Hope that this helps. I
have long forgotten where I found the synclient command.
