    I failed LOL

    Today I did one of the dumbest things anyone can do on Ubuntu.I am a laptop user and I accidentally disabled my touchpad,LOL.I was freaking out until I remembered that I had a mouse in my drawer,otherwise I would have had to reinstall Ubuntu because my enable/disable button doesn't work on Ubuntu.

    You could of tried to repair it with the LiveCD. The live CD is one of the BEST recovery tools/fixing tools out there!

    Can't you just tab/shift-tab around until you get to the option? I used to have to do that with an old Windows 95 rig we didn't have a mouse to for some reason.

    My thoughts exactly. Or I think fixing from the commandline would also be possible.
