    disabling my touchscreen

    Hi guys,
    I migrated from Windows 7 to Ubuntu 2 days ago, and while almost everything has been awesome, I cannot lower the sensitivity of my touchscreen in Ubuntu. So my mouse pointer is constantly clicking everywhere, launching apps and etc. I don't really care much about the touch screen, so all I intend to do at the moment is to deactivate it somehow. I went to /lib/modules, there I found 3 directories (3.2.0-23-generic/ & 3.2.0-25-generic/ & 3.2.0-26-generic/). In each of these three I found the subdirectories kernel/driver/input/touchscreen/ and kernel/driver/input/tablet/. Then I removed all of the files in those subdirectories. I expected that by doing this, the drivers would be removed and my touchscreen be disabled, alas nothing happened. So can anyone help me get rid of my touchscreen?

    Hi and welcome to the forums! What are your specs?

    Could you run (in a terminal) and post the output of:
    Code:
    xinput --list
