Permanently Disable Drivers on Ubuntu
When I was in college, I owned a Acer Aspire 1825ptz. It's a phased out laptop with a touchscreen and I really thought it was awesome!
Anyway, it ended up breaking and the cursor goes haywire whenever I bootup the OS. Now, before, I usually run
xinput set-prop $DEVICE_ID "Device Enabled" 0 everytime at bootup but the problem was, the cursor still goes haywire. DUH.
So, without further ado, just append, or create an
/etc/X11/xorg.conf to disable your device.
Section "InputClass" Identifier "disable touchscreen" MatchIsTouchscreen "on" MatchProduct "`xinput list` device name" Option "Ignore" "on" EndSection
