I want to completely disable my trackpad, from startup if possible.
The trackpad on my 2013 macbook pro is not working properly anymore. Click/Tap does not register and neither alternate click. I believe the trackpad is in a "always clicking" state because hovering over elements that usually change their color is not triggered either.
Connecting a mouse, even with “Ignore built-in trackpad when mouse or wireless trackpad is present” option enabled, is not working either, the mouse click does not register, only right click works.
Only way I managed to make my mouse work properly was disabling some kexts ( I dont remember which ) and then restarting the computer with the mouse plugged in already. However, after removing the mouse and plugging it back again, it stopped working.
I don't have any possibility to go to a service due to the current situation, so I am looking for any temporary workaround that will allow me to use a mouse.
