touchpad off in openbox

The touchpad on my notebook annoys me. I prefer to use a mouse. To keep it turned off in Openbox in Semplice Linux, I added the following to my ~/.config/openbox/, right before the last line of the script:

#turn touchpad off
synclient TouchpadOff=1

Alternatively, the following command turns it off during the Openbox session:

$ synclient TouchpadOff=1

And, of course, to turn it back on, change the "1" to a "0" in the above command.

For a list of synclient settings:

$ synclient -l

And, finally, for more info, there's always man synclient.
