Hello,

I've purchased a Perixx 716 wireless keyboard for my macbook running 12.04. Although the keyboard and mouse work, I can't disable tap to click on the wireless keyboard's integrated touchpad. I tried installing "Pointing Device Settings", but it only shows the apple touchpad.

Can anyone please help me fix this? Please let me know if you need more information.

Thanks,
Matt

I am having the same exact issue with my newly purchased logitech wireless keyboard/touchpad and ubuntu 12.04

Hello,
I am not sure about USB keyboards or mice but with the trackpad on the macbook if you install synaptiks it lets you disable the trackpad at will.
I am not sure if it will be used to manage the wireless keyboard and mouse but you could give it a try!

It can be found in the ubuntu software center under synaptiks. Hope this helps!

Thanks for the suggestion! Unfortunately it tells me I do not have a synaptics touchpad installed. I read somewhere about some touchpads being ALPs or PS/2, but couldn't find a fix that I could understand with my limited knowledge of Linux.

Thanks again,
Matt

edit: here is some information from xinput list:

⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)]
⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ Chicony USB Wireless HID Receiver id=9 [slave pointer (2)]
⎣ Virtual core keyboard id=3 [master keyboard (2)]
↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard id=5 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ Power Button id=6 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ Power Button id=7 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ Chicony USB Wireless HID Receiver id=8 [slave keyboard (3)]

As far as I can tell, the trackpad is using the evdev driver.
