[Bug 1080788] Re: wishlist: show a warning if the touchpad hardware has been disabled (with F9)


> Question is when will one issue this warning - perhaps on each reboot
after touchpad disabled?

An idea fell to my head:

if this information is available to the software, then:

1) the OS could keep an eye on the state of the touchpad, and at the
moment it gets disabled, notify the desktop user (with a notification,
warning popping up).

2) put an indicator onto the desktop panel (an icon that would indicate
the current state of the touchpad, similarly to the keyboard layout, and
battery, and time). If one clicks the icon, there should be some help
about it, so that the user can learn about this feature.

  Could it be possible to check whether the touchpad has been disabled
  with F9 with software and show a warning to the user?
