Disable or Enable Touchpad by synclient

Some notebooks do not have any BIOS option for enabling or disabling touchpad. You can achieve this by using Fn + FX key combination, but this time another problem occurs in some notebooks that do not memorize that action. For every reboot of the system, you need to disable touchpad manually as previously. Do not worry! Using synclient utility, you can tell the computer to do it instead of you. 

Below command will disable touchpad.

synclient TouchpadOff=1

For enabling touchpad, you need to set value to 0 and run this command in terminal as in below. 

synclient TouchpadOff=0

For adding this command to startup, navigate to 

For KDE (4.8.5): 
System Settings > System Administration > Startup and Shutdown > Autostart > Add Program 

or

For XFCE (4.10): 
Applications Menu > Settings > Settings Manager > Session and Startup > Application Autostart > Add

and add below command line to startup. 

synclient TouchpadOff=1

This will disable touchpad instead of you on every logon.
