[Bug 1283863] Re: disabling touchpad is not persistent


I now why this 'seems' fixed, now if an external mouse is removed while the touchpad is disabled the touchpad stays disabled.
(at least in 16.04

May have misunderstood the previous behaviour that when an external mouse was removed with touchpad being disabled the touchpad was immediately re-enabled but that seems like the proper behavior.
Now if mouse breaks or whatever user will either have to manually re-enable the touchpad or get another mouse, new batteries, ect.

  disabling touchpad is not persistent

Status in unity-settings-daemon package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Happens also with g-s-d
  Current Test case:
  On a laptop with a usb mouse connected disable touchpad in system settings > Mouse & Touchpad
  Touchpad will be re-enabled

  Test case 2:
  with touchpad disabled suspend laptop
  after coming out of suspend touchpad will be re-enabled

  Could be related to this -
  with external mouse connected disable touchpad, it will stop working.
  remove external mouse, touchpad is immediately re-enabled.
  Possibly during the course of normal use, restarts ect. it is 'sensed' that the mouse is not connected & touchpad -enabled is mistakenly restored?
