Disable laptop touchpad in Ubuntu
article #550, updated 1584 days ago

First run this:

xinput list

You will get something like this:

⎡ Virtual core pointer                    	id=2	[master pointer  (3)]
⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer              	id=4	[slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ Primax Electronics Dynex Wireless Optical Mouse	id=10	[slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ AlpsPS/2 ALPS GlidePoint                	id=13	[slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ PS/2 Mouse                              	id=12	[slave  pointer  (2)]
⎣ Virtual core keyboard                   	id=3	[master keyboard (2)]
    ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard             	id=5	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Video Bus                               	id=6	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button                            	id=7	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Sleep Button                            	id=8	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Laptop Integrated Webcam                	id=9	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard            	id=11	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Dell WMI hotkeys                        	id=14	[slave  keyboard (3)]

One of these will be the device you want to disable. In this case, the AlpsPS/2 ALPS GlidePoint has ID 13, so I run:

xinput set-prop 13 "Device Enabled" 0

and it’s done!
