I'd like to disable the physical keyboard and touchpad of my 2-in-1 touchscreen laptop when I use it as a tablet running on Android-x86, and so far I've managed to disable the keyboard by naming it in the file /android-7.1-rc2/system/etc/excluded-input-devices.xml, which is called AT Translated Set 2 keyboard.

But I couldn't properly name the touchpad :-( I guess I need Android equivalent of Linux command xinput --list (if something like this exists at all).

Any ideas/suggestions please?

  • Since Android-x86 is installed alongside Linux on the same laptop, using the name given by the linux command xinput --list (ELAN1200:00 04F3:3058 Touchpad) worked in Android-x86 as well ! :-) But I might keep the question still to see if there's a similar command in Android... – Sadi Jan 9 '18 at 13:59
  1. Enter the command su root to gain root access.

  2. Enter the command getevent -p to see a list of devices - which will match and even provide more detailed info than the linux command xinput --list
