I am not sure this will work on Xubuntu, at least I have not tried it
myself, but have you tried manipulating your touchpad by using the
synclient command? For example,
should turn if off, and,
should turn it back on again. If it works on your system, you could
perhaps create a little toggle script and bind it to a key combo?
