I want to disable the touchpad manually in the settings dialog. In freya, there was a switch to disable the touchpad. In loki it seesm this switch is not there anymore. Is there another place where I can disable the touchpad via the GUI (not using the command line)?

Best regards

On elementary OS Loki you can't disable the touchpad from System Settings, you have to install dconf-editor, open it and go to org->gnome->desktop->peripherals->touchpad there on send-events select disable or disable-on-external-mouse, with that you disable the touchpad.
