Disable Touchpad in Ubuntu or Linux Mint

After tooling around on the net for a bit trying to figure out how to disable the touchpad in Linux Mint 14 I found a simple way to do it via the console and the xinput command.

Start off with an "xinput list" and identify your touchpad. Next provide the device id to a xinput set-prop as shown in the image above.
