Description:

A very very simple servicemenu to disable or enable your touchpad (e.g. if sometimes you use a USB mouse, the touchpad may become annoying).
Notice: it only works if it is a *synaptic* touchpad

There are plenty of ways to disable your touchpad, for example
through the comamnds synclient TouchpadOff=1 or synclient TouchpadOff=0
which is exactly what this servicemenu does.

At reboot, this setting is reset and touchpad is enabled by default
If you want to disable it permanently, you can comment the touchpad section
in /etc/X11/xorg.conf

USAGE:

1) copy the file Disable_Enable_Touchpad.desktop in the KDE servicemenus folder,
that is located in /home/your_username/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus
OR
2) just leave the file Disable_Enable_Touchpad.desktop in same folder
and right click it; on "action" you'll find the touchpad entry

This software is designed for these people who use several mouse.
For example, a person uses notebook PC and installed USB mouse as well.
it can set the different work state for each mouse and quickly switch primary and secondary buttons .

A nice idea! I suppose you change the menu's caption to "Touchpad control" because it is shorter and allows further additions (if someone has a good idea).

I have added a German translation, you find it at http://download.lodsoft.de/temp/Touchpad_Control.tar.gz
