Though there is "toggle touchpad" secondary function on F6 button of my laptop currently this shortcut doesn't work.

xbindkeys -mk command doesn't show any info when I press Fn + F6.

I couldn't find related option in BIOS (to disable/enable the function).

$ cat /proc/bus/input/devices
...
I: Bus=0011 Vendor=0002 Product=0007 Version=01b1
N: Name="SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad"
P: Phys=isa0060/serio1/input0

B: PROP=5
B: EV=b
B: KEY=e520 10000 0 0 0 0

$ xev

  • xbindkeys is the wrong tool - try xev (and reposting isn't a good way to get answers). – Thomas Dickey Mar 17 '16 at 8:50
  • @Thomas Dickey Updated the question with xev info. – gumkins Mar 17 '16 at 8:59
  • @Thomas Dickey With regards to reposting. Is there a better way? Please let me know. – gumkins Mar 17 '16 at 9:15
