i have outlined the whole process from getting the pinebook to having it work satisfactorily.
i really recommend the two distros i tried: Q4OS and armbian.

Interesting read your blog!

I created the 50-touchpad.conf, and like the changes!

I looked at the changes you made to the disable-touchpad.py script, but do not quite understand them, could you eplain what you have improved?

Cheers!

i mostly removed superfluous key definitions, and added some verbosity.
but that's just cosmetics.

then i added the '#!/usr/bin/python3' header, which allows one to run it as an independent script (and not with 'python /path/to/script.py'); this makes it easier to give it su privileges in /etc/sudoers.

but daid's original script is definitely fully functional!

Thanks, it works really nicely at startup.
