How to disable touchpad on thinkpad laptops in X11

Thanks to Nico Schottelius for this hint.

In short, I needed to do three things:


  • xinput list - to find which ID does the touchpad have (11 for me)
  • xinput list-props 11 - to find which ID does the "enabled" setting have (125)
  • xinput set-prop 11 125 0 - to disable the annoying peripherial.
