    I have just installed Elementary OS on my touch screen laptop, and I am loving it so far - however, my laptop touch screen is rather screwed up. It acts as if, sometimes, the bottom center-right of my screen is rapidly being rubbed, and on my Windows partition, to remove problems, I deleted the drivers off of it. I once had Ubuntu on my computer, and I was able to disable the touch screen by a simple command of

    Code (Text):
    xinput -disable 10
    Which disabled the touch screen, and I later fixed it by modifying "/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev.conf"

    I've done both of these things on elementary OS, but every couple of seconds, something or a process causes the process I've disabled to relaunch, and I'm stuck with this problem.

    It is really annoying watching a YouTube video and then having two of my dock icons being removed and the browser being zoomed in extraordinarily.

    Does anybody have a solution? Even the possibility of deleting my touch screen drivers (as I don't really need it)?
