Thread: Disabling touch screen in Kali Linux

  1. #1

    Exclamation Disabling touch screen in Kali Linux

    The situation is I have an Asus Vivobook with a broken touch screen.
    I'm using the latest ISO installation of Kali on a USB drive and am very new to Kali and relatively new to Linux in general.
    Because Kali recognizes the touch screen it continues to act as if someone is pressing on the corner of the screen making the mouse unusable.
    I've searched high and low for a way to disable this. The option to disable touch screens doesn't show up anywhere that I can find. So I likely need to use the terminal window to disable it, or have to uninstall a driver somewhere.

    Any thoughts?

    The only thing I've found was xinput for Ubuntu to list and then disable devices by ID. However I can't find an easy equivalent to it.
    I've even tried uninstalling any driver I can that references multi-touch.

    Thanks for your help!
