OS: Linux Slackware 14.2, GUI: KDE. I have a touchpad on my laptop and it bothers me a lot when typing, so I decided to disable it. It can be done with command:
bash$ synclient TouchpadOff=1
To do it on startup I created a script
#!/bin/sh synclient TouchpadOff=1
And put it into the folder
~/.kde/share/autostart. Made executable. When I open "System Settings" --- "Startup and Shutdown" --- "Autostart" it shows the script as enabled:
But it doesn't work - the toupad is enabled and I have to run the script manually every time.
